Loreal Coupons 2013 - Loreal Coupons 2013: Further controversy arose when it was revealed that L'Oreal had its German headquarters for over 30 years, before being sold in 1991, on land confiscated from Jews during WWII. The Jewish family has been battling for restitution from the company for three generations, the latest of which is Edith Rosenfelder, a Holocaust survivor. Fritz Rosenfelder, was forced to sell the house to a Nazi official, of which the family never received the proceeds of the sale. Instead, the family was deported. The allies passed Jewish restitution legislation which says that transactions, even if appearing to be with the owner's consent, can be considered invalid. As the land was sold to an offshoot of L'Oreal, which was later bought out in 1961 by L'Oreal, the company claims that it is not responsible for anything that happened before then. The basis for Rosenfelder's argument is that since the original sale was illegal, all subsequent sales are equally unlawful. There was restitution paid in 1951 to the Jewish Restitution Successor Organization, but this was done without the family's consent and none of the money ever reached the family.
