A court in Prague on Thursday began dealing with a petition filed by five descendants of Jan Antonín Baťa, former owner of the Baťa shoe empire, who demand 56 million crowns in compensation for property confiscated after WWII. The property was confiscated in 1947 over Baťa’s alleged collaboration with the Nazis. However, the verdict was cancelled in 2007. The court will now decide whether the case will be accepted.
