Abstract:

In March 1996 the Norwegian Ministry of Justice appointed a Committee of Inquiry to investigate what happened to Jewish property in Norway during World War II and how and to what extent confiscated property was returned to the Jews after the war. In 1997 two separate reports were submitted: the report of the majority of the committee's members (a summary of which is given here) and the present report of the minority (consisting of Reisel and Bruland). The minority's approach is that the physical and economic liquidation of the Jews must be viewed as part of the same crime, which resulted in an all-inclusive economic liquidation; the Nazis secured all of the property, isolated the Jews economically from the rest of society, and made sure that all Jewish activities ceased. This involved several levels of loss. Pp. 1-76 contain the full text of the minority report. It describes the anti-Jewish policies of the Nazis in Norway and of the Norwegian collaborationist government, and scrutinizes the process of economic liquidation of the country's Jewry (pp. 1-25), and then focuses on postwar restitution and compensation on the part of the government. Estimates the economic losses of Norwegian Jewry to the value of 7,854,758 kroner (in 1947 values) as opposed to the Committee's majority estimate of 6,538,200. Pp. 77-125 contain documents.
