This list is entitled: "List of Jews interned in the Teis-Dâmboviţa camp and selected according to the order Nr.19.048 from September 24, 1941 of Ministry of Internal Affairs."  An additional title is: "List of the prisoners suggested to be set free from the camp, but who shall not return to the oil region."

The list includes 1,225 prisoners interned in Teis-Dâmboviţa, Dâmboviţa County as of 01 October 1941.  Teis-Dâmboviţa is a town in the Dâmboviţa County, which is northwest from Bucuresti.  According to some archival correspondence records, it is possible that the camp was established sometime in September of 1941.  There were a total of nine similar local camps in Romania.  The other eight are: Galati, Husi, Vaslui, Harlau, Falticeni, Pascani, Piatra Neamt, and Osmancea.  Most of these camps were under the local police supervision and were established as a "measure of security".  The 1,225 Jews are those who were deemed to have allegedly been against Justice or had Communist ties, which is the reason for internment.

The oil region includes the cities of Ploiesti, Prahova County.  The list consists of 1,219 Jews with no indication of where they were deported from, but according to the additional title line they were probably from Ploiesti.  Six other are from Bivolari, Iasi County.  Four prisoners died in the camp.
