During the pilot phase, about 5,000 records from cards with names starting with the letter “A” were revised and published online. These are not all the entries from Group A. The remaining records will be continually added to the database during the course of the project.
More detailed information about the record group can be found here and below: http://www.landesarchiv-berlin.de/lab-neu/anzeige_statisch.php?edit=621&anzeige=B%20Rep.%20025
The record group of the Berlin restitution offices in the Berlin State Archive (LAB, B Rep. 025)The Berlin State Archive houses more than 800,000 case files from the Berlin restitution offices. Following the enactment of the Restitution Decree (Rückerstattungsanordnung, or REAO), in 1949, the restitution offices, located in West Berlin, began reviewing restitution claims submitted by victims of Nazi persecution. In 1957, the Federal Restitution Law (Bundesrückerstattungsgesetz) was enacted, which also included property located in East Berlin that had been confiscated or otherwise acquired by the Reich, the NSDAP, the state of Prussia or others. The Berlin restitution offices were also responsible for these cases. More detailed information on the record group B Rep. 025 is available here.
The online database is produced by Facts & Files Historical Research Institute Berlin, commissioned by the Berlin State Archive. The project will be finished by the end of 2014 and is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media via the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation according to a decision of the German Bundestag and the State of Berlin.
