Holocaust survivors property Bill
Holocaust survivors property bill was introduced by Poland to implement a 2015 Constitutional Tribunal ruling that called for the setting up of deadlines after which no one can challenge faulty administrative decisions. The Bill bans appeals against the administrative decisions that were made 30 years ago.
It is being criticised as a major hindrance for Polish Jews’ claims to properties that were seized by Nazis during the Second World War. It is estimated that it would impact around 90 per cent of the requests by Holocaust survivors or their descendants.
