Chapter Summary

The main focus of most publications on the new restitution round is on Switzerland, predominantly in view of the heirless, dormant bank assets there. A few introductory remarks about the post-war restitution negotiations are required. The initial process petered out somewhere in the early 1950s as far as most countries are concerned. The German reparations to Israel and world Jewry, however, got a major start-up with the signing on 10 September 1952 of the Luxembourg Agreements. The Dutch restitution issue has attracted very little international attention among those publishing on the topic of restitution, despite the many international aspects of the Dutch negotiations. At the same time, the Dutch restitution issue has opened new paths of interaction between the Dutch Jewish community and the broader Jewish world.
