Greek Cabinet Agrees in Principle to Implement 1949 Law on Heirless Jewish Property

Download PDF for this date

The Greek Cabinet last night discussed the question of the disposition of heirless Jewish property and agreed in principle to implement a 1946 law providing for the transfer of this property to a foundation which would use funds obtained from the sale of the property for the relief and rehabilitation of Greek Jews.

Upon the request of the Minister of Education, however, a final decision was delayed until his return from a trip to Salonica which he began today. The Minister said he wanted more time to study the problem.
