Restitution: The Documentary

The greatest war in history has destroyed your country.
You have seen your life torn apart.

The war ends. You return home thinking that your house and your business will still be yours. Unfortunately, there’s a family living in your house.  People have taken over your home and business and they’re threatening to murder you.  A new Communist government is in place and you have to flee.  Decades pass and the Communists disappear but your property has been occupied, bought and sold behind your back. The new democratic government won’t take any action. The country’s prospering economy is built upon your losses.

Who’s responsible?

Who’s going to pay the Restitution?


On September 1st 1939 Nazi Germany invaded Poland. By the end of World War 2 over 30 million people including 6 million Jews had been killed. Polish Jewry was all but wiped out. Post-war Poland was still a very bad place to be Jewish. There have been attempts at restitution in the past, but to no avail. Have a look at the complete interactive timeline of events that have brought us to this point.
