The publication is a reprint of the original German proscription list from the beginning of 1940, containing the names of people from Poland intended for immediate arrest. The reprint was prepared on the basis of a copy from the resources of the Branch Archive of the Institute of National Remembrance in Katowice (reference number IPN Ka 32/899) with supplements from the copy from the collection of the Silesian Library in Katowice (reference number II 849588), with a critical introduction by Grzegorz Bębnik, D.Sc.
This book, which is less than two hundred pages long, contains - often incomplete - personal data of nearly 8, 800 persons, citizens of the Second Republic of Poland or of the Free City of Gdańsk, who, due to their activities (most often of a social or political nature) or a specific attitude, aroused the interest of the German police services. The surnames are arranged in alphabetical order, and each letter is left with a blank space - usually two or three pages, intended for pasting additions printed after the publication of the Book. Each surname is marked with appropriate symbols, denoting the way of treating a given person when captured by German police or military formations.
