Court-Decree, issued by Francis II, King of Bohemia [Present-day Czech Republic]: “Those officials or magistrates, who give permission to the Jews to obtain limited or unlimited property rights in real estate, shall be punished, without mercy, by having to pay an amount equal to the sale price into the fund for the poor of their community, and they shall confiscate any such unlawfully acquired real property, to be sold at auction for the benefit of the fund for the poor.”
