The Central Archives of Modern Records was founded in 1919 and was initially called the Military Archives and reported to the Ministry of Religious Denominations and Public Enlightenment and was tasked with securing records from the occupying German and Austrian authorities for the years 1915-1918.
The task of this archive changed in 1930 and its new task was to collect and store the archives created by central Polish offices and institutions and some archives transferred their records to this archive newly tasked with jurisdiction over modern Polish records. Many records were destroyed by fire during World War II.
