Public Program United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
In her new book, former BBC investigative journalist Dina Gold describes the Nazi seizure of her family’s stately six-story building and her extensive battle to reclaim it. The property served as the headquarters of the H. Wolff fur company, one of the most successful international businesses in Germany. The Nazis forced the sale of the building on Krausenstrasse 17/18, and after World War II, it fell in the Soviet sector of Berlin, two blocks from Checkpoint Charlie, and beyond legal reach. In this program, Gold will discuss her struggle, the ongoing challenges of restitution, and how the Museum’s resources helped her write her book.
