Restitution in Poland, Hungary, Romania and Other Countries in Eastern Europe

Warsaw Jewish Property Restitution Holocaust

The WJRO and the Claims Conference continue to press governments to provide restitution for property stolen from Jewish owners during the Holocaust.

For years, the Claims Conference has been a constituent member of the World Jewish Restitution Organization (WJRO), which is charged with the recovery of confiscated property from countries in Central and Eastern Europe. Together with local Jewish communities, the WJRO and the Claims Conference continue to press governments to provide for the restitution of, or fair compensation for, property looted by the Nazis and their collaborators during the Holocaust and later nationalized by Communist regimes.
