Eindelijk 'restitutie'

 

 

De totstandkoming van Nederlandse akkoorden over Joodse oorlogstegoeden (1997-2000)

 

 

Christiaan Ruppert

Na de Tweede Wereldoorlog proberen overlevende Joden hun geroofde eigendommen terug te krijgen. Hoewel het naoorlogse rechtsherstel in Nederland in strikt juridische zin begin jaren zestig afgesloten is, komen er eind jaren negentig alsnog openingen die leiden tot correcties en aanvullingen. In de nieuwe akkoorden is er sprake van spijtbetuigingen, restitutie en compensatie. In totaal ontvangt de Joodse gemeenschap 764 miljoen gulden van de Nederlandse regering en de financiële wereld.

Wereldwijd gelden de Nederlandse akkoorden als een groot voorbeeld om onrechtvaardigheden in naoorlogs rechtsherstel te erkennen en te herstellen. De auteur analyseert welke factoren de totstandkoming hebben bevorderd of belemmerd, en welke bepalend zijn geweest. Waarom verloopt het overleg van Joodse vertegenwoordigers met de verzekeraars en met minister Zalm harmonieus, terwijl het met de banken en beurs moeizaam gaat? En hoe wijkt Nederland af van die Europese landen waar eind jaren negentig ook restitutieprocessen plaatsvinden?

Hans Fidom (ed.)

The Orgelpark is a concert venue in Amsterdam; its aim is to integrate the organ into musical life in general. The Orgelpark initiated the Orgelpark Research Program in 2008. The Orgelpark Research Reports are published in cooperation with the Chair of Organ Studies at VU University Amsterdam. The Orgelpark Foundation established the Chair in 2010. Orgelpark Research Report #4 is dedicated to the Van Straten Organ at the Orgelpark. The Van Straten Organ was built in 2012. It represents an informed interpretation of the original state of the organ that Peter Gerritsz built in the Nicolaïkerk at Utrecht in 1479. This Blokwerk organ still exists, be it in a significantly changed state. In the past few years the Orgelpark organized colloquia and an international symposium to discuss several aspects of the Van Straten Organ and the Gerritsz Organ. Orgelpark Research Report #4 contains extended versions of selected lectures presented on these occasions. The essays by Kimberly Marshall, Harald Vogel, and Manfred Novak include recordings of the Van Straten Organ.
