- Ende 19. Jahrhundert
Taken and put on display
We do not know who owned this bracelet. But we do know it was one of countless objects Jewish people in Berlin were forced to sell far below market value, starting in 1933. Many people benefited from the plundering of the Jewish population. From 1939 to 1941 the Berlin City Museum spent very little money to acquire around 5,000 silver objects that had previously belonged to Jews. Almost 500 of these objects, including this bracelet, are still housed at the Berlin City Museum today. The museum is holding them for the Jewish Claims Conference, which represents Jews seeking compensation for Nazi persecution.
