Alien Property

Scott explores the role of the Alien Property Custodian with John Bendix, researcher for the Presidential Advisory on Holocaust Assets, and David Whitman, of U.S. News and World Report. This office of the U.S. Government retained the profits earned on works created by residents of the Axis power nations during --and after-- World War Two, in order to keep those funds out of the hands of the Nazis.
