Jews from abroad regularly claim possesion and get compensations. Right now there are still 200000 holocaust survivors in Israel alone, and they all get money. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27121204
Exactly, and rightfully so. However, those 105.000 "missing" Jewish people from the Netherlands have never - to this day - claimed their possessions / compensation. Now why would that be?
I dont know about your situation in the Netherlands. In other lands they still regularly claim posession.
There are 200000 holocaust survivors in Israel alone who get money, there should be plenty of dutch jews among them.
Like I said, because of the excellent population registration system in the Netherlands we know of the 105.000 people who didn't come back from the concentration camps, none claimed money / possessions etc.
That doesn't mean there aren't Dutch holocaust survivors in the 200.000 holocaust survivors in Israel currently getting compensation.
The sad fact is, that all over Europe, from Holland to Belgium, from France to Germany, from the Czech Republic to Poland, Jewish people who either survived the camps, or were able to hide from the Germans with resistance people, found out their houses had been taken over by locals, who refused to leave the houses.
Because the Jewish people lost everything whilst being deported / going in hiding, they had nothing left to prove their bank savings. It is a fact that in Holland, a lot of bankers claimed to survivors from World War 2, they couldn't do anything about possible savings, because the family had "lost" the bank statements.
A disgrace, something that happened all over Europe. Bankers are scum, we only have to look at the current financial crisis for prove of that!
