Nazi looting : the plunder of Dutch Jewry during the Second World War

"Nazi Looting offers a comprehensive history of the Dutch experience and demonstrates how reputable indigenous institutions acted as willing collaborators. Beginning with a survey of international law and various definitions of looting, the author shows how the Germans systematically robbed Dutch Jewry through a variety of means that gave the outward appearance of 'honest' trading. Forced to sell under duress and at unreasonably low prices, few dared refuse the German on the doorstep when threatened with prison or incarceration in a camp."--Jacket
