Was Your Family's Property Taken During The Holocaust?

Was Your Family's Property Taken During The Holocaust?

If you or your family owned movable, immovable, or intangible property that was confiscated, looted or forcibly sold in countries governed or occupied by the Nazi forces or Axis powers during the Holocaust era and you or your relatives received no restitution for that property after the Holocaust era, you may be eligible to participate in the Holocaust Era Asset Restitution Taskforce project (Project HEART).

Project HEART is a nonprofit initiative of the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), with the support of the Government of Israel, Project HEART—Holocaust Era Asset Restitution Taskforce—aims to provide the tools, strategy, and information to enable the Government of Israel, the project, and its partners to bring about a small measure of justice to eligible heirs of Jewish victims, the victims themselves, and the Jewish people.

At this initial stage, Project HEART is focusing on identifying individuals with potential claims regarding the following types of private property for which no restitution was received after the Holocaust era:

    * private property that was located in countries that were controlled by the Nazi forces or Axis powers at any time during the Holocaust era;

    * and private property that belonged to Jewish persons as defined by Nazi/Axis racial laws;

    * and private property that was confiscated, looted, or forcibly sold by the Nazi forces or Axis powers during the Holocaust era.

  • See full details in this Project Heart Announcement document (pdf)
