German officials handed over four files from the Nazi era to the country’s Jewish community that may help survivors reclaim their property. The files were found recently in a German government office after the government of the state of Hesse launched a search for documents that provide information about property confiscated from German Jews. The files contain, among other things, information on the household contents of about 100 apartments.
