Summary
This Collection contains the files of the restitution cases handled by the lawyer Hans-Heinz Altmann. It consists primarily of legal correspondence; medical opinions, attestations, insurance records or income statements are frequently enclosed. Although the focus is clearly on the legal bearings of the individual cases, the material also gives insight into the difficulties displacement and emigration inflicted upon the refugees. This becomes especially obvious in regard to the clients trouble procuring documentation and affidavits or finding attesters substantiating their restitution
