Slovakian Partisan Government Will Temporarily Retain Confiscated Jewish Property

Commercial enterprises confiscated by the Germans from Jews in Slovakia will remain temporarily under state control in the sections of the country which have been liberated by partisan forces, according to a decree of the Slovak National Council appearing in the newspaper “Cas” which is published in the city of Banska-Bystrica.

The decree says “all enterprises in the possession of persons of German nationality are to be controlled by the state, including Jewish enterprises acquired under the anti-Jewish laws or by private agreement.”
