How can we seek justice for Holocaust victims whose lives were torn apart? Author Dina Gold describes the Nazi seizure of her family’s business in Berlin, her extensive battle to reclaim it, and the Museum resources that help build restitution cases.
The property served as the headquarters of the H. Wolff fur company, one of the most successful international businesses in Germany. The Nazis forced the sale of the building on Krausenstrasse 17/18, and after World War II, it fell in the Soviet sector of Berlin, two blocks from Checkpoint Charlie, and beyond legal reach.
