Written Parliamentary questions of Markuszower MP and Wilders MP (both PVV) to the Ministers of Education, Culture and Science; of Health, Welfare and Sport; of the Interior and Kingdom Relations; of Finance; and of Justice and Security about the article that four out of five municipalities do not know whether "during the Second World War, Jewish real estate was expropriated and resold, while that did happen in their municipality" (*):

1.)
Are you familiar with the article and the research?

2.)
Are you prepared to map all the stolen property of Jews, in cooperation with the Dutch municipalities? Including the real estate that was expropriated during the war but was not resold? And also, for example, commercial real estate that was robbed by "verwalters’" appointed by the Nazis?

3.)
Did the Dutch government, central and local, own and/or take possession of real estate of which the Jewish owners or their relatives were murdered? If so, do you not believe that these properties should be returned to the Jewish Community?

4.)
What efforts did Jews, who survived the Shoa, have to make after the war, and what costs did they have to incur, to get their looted property back?

5.)
Does the Minister believe that the State of the Netherlands is liable for the actions of wrong notaries, after all, they formed a crucial link in the robbery of the Jewish looted real estate in and after the war?

6.)
Are you familiar with the fact that with every sale of the stolen Jewish property, the Tax Authorities collected 5% "registration fee"? If so, are you willing to refund these fees?

7.)
Was the restitution of the looted Jewish real estate part of the settlement made by the government with the Jewish Community in 2000?

8.)
Which municipalities have imposed leasehold, street tax and other levies on the returning Jews?

 

9.)
Do you share our opinion that the time has come to find out which governmental irregularities in WWII can still be rectified? Such as collected fines and taxes, Jewish star fees, transport costs paid by or on behalf of those transported away?

10.)
Are you aware that much information about the stolen Jewish property is in the archives of the Dutch Management Institute? Don't you think it is time to make all these archives digitally accessible and freely accessible?
