The Bavarian State Restitution office, which was not operating during the several months when the Auerbach trial took place, today announced the resumption of its work.

There are about 120,000 restitution and indemnification claims awaiting settlement by this office, it was revealed today. At the same time it was also reported that an agreement was reached between the Jewish Restitution Successor Organization and the Jewish Community of Munich under which the community is to receive about 1,000,000 marks worth of former Jewish communal and heirless property.
