Reichbank Participated with Gestapo in Looting Jewish Property, Nuremberg Court Hears

Testimony given today at the war crimes trial here left no doubt that the administration of the Reichsbank participated with the Gestapo in looting Jewish property and in administering it.

The witnesses testified that two Gestapo officials and two officials of the Reichsbank formed a special body supervising the administration of the hugs amount of money and valuables confiscated from Jews in all parts of Europe. The Reichsbank insisted on “helping” the Gestapo in administering the Jewish property “because the Gestapo man were not specialists,” one of the witnesses stated.
