Last Week to Register Claims Against Germany by Belgian Ex-residents

Download PDF for this date

Former Belgian residents now in the United States were advised today that they have only one week left to register their claims with competent Jewish organizations in Belgium against the German Government for movable property confiscated during the Nazi occupation of Belgium. The deadline is September 30, 1958.

The West German Federal Restitution Law of 1957 applies to such confiscations provided that the property was carried off to the area of the Federal Republic of Germany or to Berlin, both East and West. Claimants in this category should contact the Aide Aux Israelites Victimes de la Guerre 121a chaussee de Charleroi, Bruxelles, from whom the forms necessary for filing claims may be obtained at a cost of three dollars. This organization will provide necessary evidence and assist claimants in prosecuting their cases. The deadline set by Bonn for receiving such claims is December 31, 1958.
