European Shoah Legacy Institute (ESLI)

Terezin Declaration / Guidelines and Best Practices / Immovable Property Review Conference

WJRO has supported the development of the European Shoah Legacy Institute (ESLI), which was created in 2010 by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic as an outgrowth of the Terezin Declaration. 

ESLI was established to seek systemic solutions on an international level leading to restitution of immovable property, art, Judaica and Jewish cultural assets stolen by the Nazis; provision of adequate social welfare to Holocaust survivors and other victims of Nazism; and promotion of Holocaust education, research and remembrance. 

Experts affiliated with WJRO serve on ESLI’s Advisory Council, and WJRO works collaboratively with ESLI.
