Poland officially approves law that limits Holocaust restitution claims, sparking global Jewish outrage

(JTA) — Poland’s president signed into law a bill that will restrict Holocaust restitution claims by Jews and others who had property stolen by the Nazis or Soviet-backed occupation forces during the World War II era.

The law, signed Saturday by President Andrzej Duda, gives all property restitution claims a 30-year time limit from the alleged theft. That will effectively wipe out any claims from the World War II years.https://www.jta.org/quick-reads/poland-officially-approves-law-that-limits-holocaust-restitution-claims-sparking-global-jewish-outrage
