Title
Study Commission on Jewish Assets (Commission d'Études des Biens Juifs)

Date
1997-2001

Description
The Study Commission on Jewish Assets was created by Royal Decree of 6 July 1997, and subsequently by the Act of 15 January 1999. It was chaired by M. Lucien Buysse. Its aim was to investigate the fate of the Belgian Jewish Community's assets which were plundered, surrendered or abandoned during the Second World War. The Study Commission studied the ways in which looting took place during the Occupation, as well as the measures taken after the war by the Government and the private sector to restore the looted property to its owners or to pay compensation. The population considered in this research were those who were subject to the anti-Jewish policies adopted by the Nazi occupying forces in Belgium. The Study Commission therefore drew up a database containing information on the victims of those policies, regardless of their nationality. The Study Commission submitted a full report to the Belgian Government on 12 July 2001 and was disbanded on 1 October 2001.

A detailed summary  of the Final Report  is available on this website under Belgium: Official Reports.
