Collection of Manuscripts of the Islamic Community

Collection of Manuscripts of the Islamic Community (listed since 1961)

The Islamic Community's Central archive had been established in the late Ottoman period as a provincial archive for records and deeds of religious foundations as well as records about Islamic schools. The archive was torched by Serb policemen on 13 June 1999; the largest part of the collection of records going back for more than 300 years perished in the flames. Only a small part of the records moved to a different building of the Kosovo Archives survived.
