Restitution by Country


WJRO consults and negotiates with national and local governments in Eastern and Central Europe for the return of Jewish communal property and heirless private property and the payment of full compensation in cases where restitution is impossible. WJRO works for the restitution of private property and for compensation to Holocaust survivors. Together with local Jewish communities, WJRO establishes local foundations to file restitution claims and use the proceeds to support survivors and local Jewish life.
