JNS.org – Romania’s parliament is expected to pass a restitution bill that would ease the process for Holocaust survivors to reclaim property that was stolen from them during the war.

Jewish property confiscated in Romania during the Holocaust was seized for a second time by the Communist regime in that country, which held power for 42 years.

Ever since the Communist government fell, Holocaust restitution laws in Romania have been riddled with red tape, preventing the original owners from getting their property back from the government. Romanian lawmakers told Reuters that the parliament plans to pass the new restitution bill on May 3.
