Title
Commission on Jewish Assets in Sweden at the Time of the Second World War

Date
1997 -1999

Description
On 13 February 1997, the Swedish government authorised the Minister for Foreign Affairs to appoint a Commission to clarify as far as possible the fate of property of Jewish origin brought to Sweden in connection with the Nazi persecution of the Jews before and during the Second World War. Under the Commission's terms of reference, its report was to be submitted not later than 1 March 1998.  This was later extended to 1 March 1999.

The Commission's points of inquiry were as follows:

  • Did the Riksbank (Sweden's central bank) receive looted gold or gold plundered from individuals?
  • What happened to unclaimed Jewish assets in Sweden after the war?
  • Could Jewish property have come to Sweden as part of trade exchanges with Nazi Germany

    Could Jewish assets have been included in the disposal of German assets in Sweden after the war?

    The Final Report summarising the findings of the Commission was published in 1999 when the Commission stated its intention to publish subsequently a number of research reports written by individuals who had been specially employed to compile supporting documentation for the Commission.
