The #MyPropertyStory campaign encourages Holocaust survivors and their families, together with WJRO, to share their stories and raise awareness of the need to address the restitution of Jewish private and communal property seized during the Holocaust and its aftermath.

Behind your family’s home, business, and keepsake, there is a story.

What connects you to your family history?
