Re: "Declaration of Means" - can one collect from these assets? #germany


Andreas Schwab <andreas.schwab@...>
 

Assets in German accounts were forfeited if not declared on a special
form called "Ablieferung von Bargeld und Anmeldung von
Reichsmarkkonten bei Geldinstituten" (Handing in of cash and
registration of accounts in reichsmarks at financial institutions).

The deadline was 26 June 1948.
Even then, one part of the assets were devaluated 1:10, another one
later 6.5:100, and what was left was scrapped altogether.

Does anyone know if it is possible, at this late date, for
descendants of
these women to collect against these bank accounts?
