Title: Restitution - Reclaiming Property Frpm Before WW2
Post by: ilherman on December 22, 2019, 12:23:01 AM
Are there any official rules about this? If I know the house where my grandparents lived before WW2 is there a way for me to claim it? Same goes for old abandoned shulls in old towns.

It depends on the country. See some below

I know that my grandfather has been fighting with various govt. for decades over his house in Muncacz. The town changed hands many times and each govt. refused to take responsibility.
