Wanted: U.S. claimants of Holocaust-era assets in prestate Israel

In Israel, restituting Holocaust-era assets isn’t just about getting European countries, banks and insurance companies to pay up. It’s also about finding the rightful heirs of thousands of prestate assets in Israel whose original Jewish owners perished during the Holocaust. These include dormant bank accounts, real estate, bonds and other assets purchased by European Jews before the war in prestate Israel either out of Zionist impulse or financial consideration.
