Nazis forced the Jews to pay the
costs of the pogroms and banned them
from gainful economic activity. Insurance
monies to cover the damages were
confiscated, Jewish store and home
owners had to repair their buildings
at their own cost and an “atonement fee” of
1 billion Reichsmarks (about $400
million) was imposed on the community.
This document, issued by the finance
office in Friedrichshain, states
that the tax assessment for Dr. Norbert
Landecker is set at 4000 Reichsmarks
and is to be paid in four installments.
