PRESIDENT'S REPORT

Melita,

There is a long and glorious history of Lithuanian Jewry. Many Jews are descended from those that created that history.

The Claims Conference and the World Jewish Restitution Organization (WJRO) are pleased to bring you this important news - the launch of an international outreach campaign to notify Lithuanian Jewish property owners and certain of their heirs who may be eligible to receive symbolic compensation for immovable private property expropriated in Lithuania during the Holocaust and its aftermath. The deadline is December 31, 2023.

This program is of tremendous historical significance, particularly as it includes certain heirs of those whose property was taken.



In December 2022, the Republic of Lithuania achieved a significant milestone by adopting an important law on private property restitution. This achievement was the culmination of diligent work by WJRO and the local Lithuanian Jewish community. In February 2023, WJRO alongside the Lithuanian Good Will Foundation announced that Lithuanian Jewish property owners or certain of their heirs could apply for the new program that emerged from this law.

Lithuania is allocating €5-10 million as symbolic compensation. Although the amount is not large, this fund aims to provide recognition to Holocaust survivors and their families who were excluded from previous restitution legislation due to foreign citizenship.....
.

Please help us by sharing this information with anyone you think may be interested.

Thank you
Gideon Taylor

Prijevod  

U prosincu 2022. Republika Litva postigla je značajnu prekretnicu usvajanjem važnog zakona o povratu privatne imovine. Ovo postignuće predstavljalo je vrhunac marljivog rada WJRO-a i lokalne litavske židovske zajednice.

U veljači 2023. WJRO je zajedno s Litavskom zakladom dobre volje najavio da se litvanski židovski vlasnici imovine ili neki njihovi nasljednici mogu prijaviti za novi program koji proizlazi iz ovog zakona.

Litva izdvaja 5-10 milijuna eura kao simboličnu naknadu. Iako iznos nije velik, ovaj fond ima za cilj odati priznanje preživjelima holokausta i njihovim obiteljima koji su zbog stranog državljanstva bili isključeni iz prijašnjih zakona o restituciji.
