Wiedergutmachung for
National Socialist Injustice

Wiedergutmachung is the term used to describe the German government’s efforts to take responsibility and make amends for crimes committed by the National Socialist regime. In material terms, this encompasses the return of stolen property, compensation payments and assistance measures.

This online platform was initiated by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Finance as a follow-up task for German Wiedergutmachung policy. For the first time, it pools relevant archival material held by German federal and Land authorities. It will be expanded on a continuous basis to include archival material from additional domestic and international sources.
