Final Report of the Claims Committee is out now
Spanning 562 pages, this publication documents the activities of the Claims Committee – an independent and internationally composed body that decided on 20,702 applications for compensation of asset losses. Around 25,000 Nazi victims and heirs received compensation payments totaling approx. 215 million U.S. dollars.
In the Viennese weekly “Falter”, Matthias Dusini described the Final Report as a “Monument of the Republic”. In these times of #socialdistancing and #distancelearning the publication is recommended to all those on the lookout for informative and insightful literature on contemporary history for themselves or as a special gift for someone with an interest in history.
It can be purchased from the Facultas online shop for 39 euros. Orders received by 30 April 2020 qualify for free delivery in Austria.
Preparations to hold a presentation of the Final Report are currently underway.
