This collection concerns the diamond trade in Belgium between 1935 and 1946. The collection traces the looting of Jewish diamond traders, organized and centralized through the so-called Devisenschütz-Kommando, which ultimately expropriated property worth an estimated 72 million Belgian francs. The collection is organized into personal and subject files.
