Gantz calls for international condemnation of Polish restitution law

Raoul Wootliff is the The Times of Israel's political correspondent.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz also comments on Poland’s passage of a law that severely restricts World War II-era restitution claims, calling for international condemnation of Poland.

“As the son of Holocaust survivors, I am deeply disturbed by the law passed in Poland that effectively prevents justice for the victims of the Holocaust and their families,” he says in a statement.

“Property restitution is a small yet significant part of the process to fulfill the rights of those who have survived and to acknowledge those who have perished in one of the world’s biggest genocides,” he says.

“I call on my international partners to condemn this move in one voice,” the statement concludes.
