THE Polish government has published draft legislation on the return of confiscated property that would exclude most Holocaust survivors and their families.

The bill, which was announced Friday, would require claimants to be citizens living in Poland and exclude all heirs except “first-line heirs,” meaning spouses, children or grandchildren.

Most Jews who survived the Holocaust left Poland and neither they nor their children and grandchildren currently live in Poland.

Other survivors or their offspring who may want to claim family property are not first-line heirs.
