Greek Government Decides to Convert Property of Murdered Jews into Jewish Relief Fund

The Greek Government decided that all property left by murdered Jews in Greece for which no heirs are found will revert to a special fund for the relief of the Greek Jewish community, the Greek Information Office in London announced today. Details of the administration and scope of the fund will be worked out later.

The decision constitutes an important deviation from present policy, which provides that the property of all persons who were the victims of aggression reverts to the State if no claimants show up.
