Commission speciale pour l’étude des spoliations des bien juifs au Luxembourg pendant les années de guerre 1940–1945
[Special Study Commission on the Spoliation of Jewish Assets in Luxembourg during the War Years 1940–1945]
The commission, created upon the suggestion of the Prime Minister, was established in September 2001 and first convened in January 2002. Its mission is to study the conditions under which the Nazi occupiers plundered Jewish assets during the war years in Luxembourg. It will also study the manner and degree of restitution and compensation accorded to victims of spoliation and to their heirs after the war. Though the exact time the research will take is unknown, the commission hopes to finish its work in three years and will publish an interim report in spring 2003.
