Summary/Abstract: This article brings into light new information about some episodes of the Bucharest pogrom which have not been sufficiently documented, so far. Due to documents found by the author in spring of 2016 in the archives of the National Council for Studying the Securitate Archives (CNSAS), this paper focuses on the use of criminal cases for the conviction of those who participated in the legionary rebellion, in January 1941. Many of these people were investigated and prosecuted for crimes committed against Jews. The newly discovered archive documents open different paths of research and make it possible to launch new assumptions about the perpetrators. The article displays the variety of offenses they committed during the pogrom, as well as the different fates of the perpetrators.
