New Data: Major Theft of Jewish Real Estate in Second World War

During the Second World War real estate brokers acting in bad faith earned a lot of money by selling property belonging to Jews. Approximately 20,000 buildings belonging to Jews were taken over by these brokers who sold at least nine thousand of them. These are the findings of the historian Eric Slot. In 1997 a government commission had found that there was no proof that post-war restitution concerning Jewish real estate had been inaccurate. Slots findings show that the commissions conclusions were wrong.
