Insurance Claim Form - Domestic Bomb Damage, Issued to German Residents, Germany, circa 1945 Reg. No: HT 16985
- An insurance claim form, not filled-out, issued to residents in Germany for claims on domestic bomb damage during World War II. The Wieser family did not submit a claim although they did suffer some bomb damage in Innsbruck towards the end of the war. It was brought to Australia by the family when they migrated from Germany in 1951. The Wieser family's migration experience, is one of statelessness and displacement, both during World War II and afterwards, and of continual movement and fracturing of the family upon their arrival in Australia.
- Four page A4 size document, folded at centre and printed on all four sides. Entitled 'Mein Hab und Gut', it includes an inventory of house related items with spaces to check off those that received bomb damage.
