Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

While the Nazi time in Germany it was practise, that Jews had to "sell" their posessions to whomever to have the right to leave Germany. The so called selling was of course robbery, because there was no sign of a free contract to a free price, but more ridiculous little money (if ever) for real treasures. this happened with houses, land, but also art.
Sure, it would have been the easiest to declare all contracts from this time unvalid right after the war, but it was even more difficult, because the allied forces confiscated much stuff, sometimes as reparations sometimes just soldiers stole them and sent or brought them home.
This new ruling might become a step in the right direction of how to handle such caes.
But as long as nobody seriously researches the Swiss bankings, there will be no justice for the herits of Holocaust victims.
