I guess they were cut off by Henri himself. It is known that he kept his favorite negatives - cut loose from each other - in a small tin can that he gave to someone who kept them for him during the war. He buried his Leica somewhere in Lorraine before being arrested by the Germans and was kept as a prisoner of war. In those years the negative files as we know them today didn't exist.

Erik.
