This database aims to serve as a useful research tool by providing both qualified researchers and the general public with data and materials that we identified and recorded during the research project. The database consists of four categories of analysis: 1) Legislation; 2) Benefits; 3) Organizations; and 4) Public debate. For each of these categories, the visitor can find the following data:

1) Legislation: 65 laws related to recognizing the National Resistance. The information provided includes the law’s title, abbreviation, and date; the Official Gazette in which it was published; and the law’s relationship to other laws (e.g., whether it amends, repeals, or supplements another law, etc.).

2) Benefits: 102 moral and/or material benefits (medals, pensions, etc.) related to the legislation on recognizing the National Resistance. The information provided here includes the benefit’s title and its association with National Resistance legislation (e.g., which law is associated with the benefit in question).

3) Organizations: 537 organizations that were either recognized or rejected by the existing legislation on recognizing the National Resistance. The data provided for each organization includes its official name, the law(s) by which it was recognized and/or rejected, the type of organization (e.g., National Guerrilla Band, National Intelligence and Sabotage Organization, or National Domestic Organization), the recognition Committee record determining the organization’s recognition and/or rejection, the Royal Decree or Presidential Decree and Official Gazette that published the recognition, the names of the organization’s leader and other members, the organization’s location and period of activity, affiliated/related organizations, and the DEPATHA file where the material is located.
