WORLD JEWISH RESTITUTION ORGANISATION     (WJRO)
WJRO represents world Jewry in pursuing claims for the recovery of Jewish properties in Europe (outside of Germany and Austria). WJRO was established by leading world Jewish organizations to address the restitution of Jewish property and to remind the world that the time has come to redress the enormous material wrongs caused to European Jewry during the Holocaust.


THE HOLOCAUST AND THE UNITED NATIONS OUTREACH PROGRAMME

Rejecting any denial of the Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part, the General Assembly adopted a resolution (A/RES/60/7) by consensus condemning "without reserve" all manifestations of religious intolerance, incitement, harassment or violence against persons or communities based on ethnic origin or religious belief, whenever they occur.

The resolution declared that the United Nations would designate 27 January -- the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp -- as an annual International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, and urged Member States to develop educational programmes to instill the memory of the tragedy in future generations to prevent genocide from occurring again. It requested the United Nations Secretary-General to establish an outreach programme on the "Holocaust and the United Nations", as well as institute measures to mobilize civil society for Holocaust remembrance and education, in order to help prevent future acts of genocide.

The Holocaust was a turning point in history, which prompted the world to say "never again". The significance of resolution A/RES/60/7 is that it calls for a remembrance of past crimes with an eye towards preventing them in the future.

RESTITUTION, DUTCH GOVERNMENT

Restitution

During the Second World War, the property of many Dutch Jews and other Jewish people in the Netherlands was confiscated. In 1990s there was a resurgence of worldwide interest in the issue of Nazi looting and the restitution of financial and other assets.

The Dutch government eventually made €181.5 million available to compensate the victims and their families.

Investigation and restitution of legal rights

The international debate about the return of Jewish financial assets began in 1996. Various government investigations showed that post-war Dutch society had been insufficiently sensitive to the damage inflicted on the Jewish community during the war. Restitution had been inadequate. Acting on the advice of the investigating committees, the Dutch government decided that the victims should have the right to full restitution of all misappropriated assets.

Restitution of financial assets

In 1999-2000, extensive discussions between the Jewish community and the Dutch government, insurance companies, banks and stock market authorities culminated in a series of agreements on the restitution of financial assets. Under a settlement agreed with the Jewish community, the Dutch state made a sum of €181.5 million available in recognition of failures in the past treatment of the victims of WWII persecution, the shortcomings in post-war restitution, and the impact of this on people’s subsequent lives. The money was to be managed and allocated by the Jewish community under government supervision.

Almost immediately after the end of the Second World War, it became clear that compensation needed to be provided to those who had suffered damage as a result of National Socialist injustice. Those who had suffered oppression due to their political opposition to National Socialism or on the grounds of race, religion or ideology were particularly affected.
