The Commission for the Compensation of Victims of Spoliations Resulting from the Anti-Semitic Legislation in Force During the Occupation (CIVS) came to New York in November for the fourth time. The delegation examined 66 files from Americans who were living in France during the Second World War and were victims of spoliations. This mission was an opportunity for the French Government to demonstrate to the American authorities its determination to give equal rights to the claimants whether they are French or American, to allow them to express themselves freely and find in common a fair and appropriate response. It was also an opportunity for the official members to meet important persons of the Jewish community as well as representatives of major American Jewish organizations and associations like the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors & Their Descendants, to present its past and future actions.
