Central Library of Berlin Seeking Descendants of Book Owners

The Central Library of Berlin has inventories of books that belonged to Berlin Jews before they were deported by the Nazis.  The library is trying to find the descendants of the rightful owners of these books.  A list online shows the names of the owners as far as they could be identified through inscriptions in the books.

The Web site (in German; you can use Google to translate) is http://www.zlb.de/aktivitaeten/raubgut.

The list is at http://www.zlb.de/aktivitaeten/raubgut/namenliste10112011.pdf.

If you find the names of relatives or acquaintances contact raubgut@zlb.de (raubgut means "loot" in English).
