Restitution - Reclaiming Property Frpm Before WW2
« 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

 (Poland for example refuses to compensate.

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.
