Nederlands Exposition in Auschwitz Persecution

Chronology

Looting the Jews

Registration was followed by mass looting. In 1941, Lippmann, Rosenthal & Co.*, a small Jewish bank in Amsterdam, was split in half. Jews had to deposit all their money in the new branch (abbreviated Liro*) located on Sarphatistraat. In May 1942, collections of valuables and property followed. Homes of deported Jews were emptied by the Puls removal company by order of the Liro Bank. Representatives of the Liro robbed the Jews of their remaining money in Westerbork*, sold their shares and property. The bank was therefore called the looting bank. The deportation of the Jews was financed with Jewish money.
