On the Activity of the French Compensation Commission

Lucien Kalfon

Deutsche Fassung


The French commission on compensation for the victims of expropriation carried out on the basis of anti-Semitic laws in force during the German occupation was founded in 1999. It investigates individual inquiries filed by victims of expropriation and issues recommendations on restitution and compensation, which the general secretary of the French government then decides.
