Israel is creating an office to locate the heirs of bank accounts and property belonging to Holocaust victims. Until now, the office that managed abandoned property waited for survivors or their heirs to turn up and claim their property. The new unit will start its operations next year, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
