Final Report of the Claims Committee - Brief Overview
One of the most significant projects ever to be implemented under Austria’s Second Republic for the compensation of Nazi seizures of assets has come to an end. In September 2015 the Claims Committee of the General Settlement Fund for Victims of National Socialism presented its comprehensive final report to the Fund’s Board of Trustees, which consists of the Presidium of the National Council, representatives from all parties elected to the Austrian Parliament and from the Federal Government, as well as representatives from victims’ organizations and from the religious communities. On 4 April 2017 the report was acknowledged by the Main Committee of the National Council in the presence of the Claims Committee. Preparations are currently underway to publish a book on the subject of the final report, which is aimed at the general public.
This brief overview of the Final Report provides a concise summary of the over 700 pages of the Final Report of the Claims Committee of the General Settlement Fund for Victims of National Socialism.
