Abstract The systematic antisemitism of the Nazis peaked with the pogs of 1938-39, the outcome of which was incomparable violence and despotism towards Jewish citizens. The events that culminated into the "Reichspogromnacht" also led to a massive wave of expropriation. The mind cannot begin to process the vast amount of monetary and material goods taken from the Jews on Kristallnacht and years to follow. But the stolen valuables were meticulously documented by a group known as the auctioneers. Their files place private stories in perspective with the major developments of Nazi Germany, showing us those who’ve profited most from the property transfers.
