U.S. Court Upsets German Jurists; Rules Jew Must Receive Back Land Sold Under Duress

A decision of a German court upholding the refusal of a German to return to a Jew property which the Jew sold under Nazi duress in 1938 was today reversed by an American court.

Where the German jurists held that the sale of a parcel of land was valid, the American court insisted that business transacted under the Nuremberg Laws must be considered “contrary to a sense of justice.”
