The Polish bill would make it impossible for survivors of the Holocaust and their families from pursuing claims for restitution or compensation for property stolen by Nazi Germany or the Communist-era government. The senators urged the Polish President to “demonstrate its clear opposition to the crimes committed by Nazi Germany and the Soviet-backed Polish government.”
“Congress has acted on multiple occasions to provide clarity on Holocaust restitution issues,” Deutch said last week. “History cannot be ignored or rewritten, and I hope the Acting Solicitor General will take into consideration longstanding congressional action and intent. We will continue to support efforts to ease the burden for the recovery of Holocaust-era property.”
