Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A chilling set of three documents (2012.1.558 &559) regarding the Nazi appropriation of insurance rebates or refunds from policies once owned by deceased Jews who perished within concentration camps. The first, 2pp. legal folio, Munich, Apr. 29, 1943, lists nine deceased Jews who were "deregistered," "expelled," "deceased" or otherwise no longer insured. With two other documents, 1p. 8vo. each, dated Munich, June 2, and 18, 1943, regarding the list. Of course, Nazi decrees provided that these funds from "non-Aryans" must be forfeited to the government.
