This project, the very first project of the VWI, is dedicated to the topic of confiscation of property between 1938 and 1945 and restitution and compensation after 1945. The results of this work were compiled on an online platform by “forschungsbüro. Verein für wissenschaftliche und kulturelle Dienstleistungen”, who also maintain the platform and make it accessible.

 

The platform is conceived as a modular system, offering detailed information on the means which can be of great assistance in research. It contains information on Austrian archives containing documents on the confiscation of property, on the rescindment of citizenship, and on the process by which one can discover whether a particular property or apartment was “Aryanised”. ns-quellen.at offers an overview of the legal foundations both of Nazi confiscation of property as well as of restitution and compensation by the Republic of Austria after 1945. All legislation relevant in the context are collected here and made directly available in original form. It additionally includes bibliographical references and a glossary of relevant terminology.

 

The platform is understood as a portal: It does not save a trip to the archives, but is designed to facilitate research there.

 

The platform went online in 2011 and has been continually maintained and sometimes updated since.
