Commission on Jewish Assets in Sweden at the Time of the Second World War
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:
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.The Commission's detailed findings on art can be read here.Source
