Alternate Heir (Ersatzerbe)

Persuant to § 2096 of the German Civil Code (BGB) the testator may appoint a person to whom the share of a designated heir (Erbe) shall pass if such heir dies before the testator. Such person is generally referred to as "Ersatzerbe" or, in English, as "substitute heir" or "alternate heir".
