Listen on

Episode notes

Historian and author Dr Nicola Tallis explores the topic of Nazi gold - what it is, where it came from and where it might be now - with Callum McKelvie, the Features Editor at All About History Magazine. 

Callum has researched and written extensively about Nazi gold and he tells Nicola how the gold, as well as precious stones and art work, was collected by the Nazis as part of Aryanization, the forced expulsion of Jews from business life in Nazi Germany, Axis-aligned states, and their occupied territories. 

It entailed the transfer of Jewish property into "Aryan" hands.
