An example of Nazi plundering in Holland
" The Bosboom Family "
Most studies of the economic plunder of the Jews during the holocaust demonstrate the wider picture, with dazzling lists of property and the vast sums of money stolen by the Nazis.
The following example captures the naked robbery at its most individual, an inventory of the fixtures and fittings from one Jewish family in Amsterdam, the family Bosboom, who all perished in Auschwitz on the 23 July 1942.
