Property Restitution in Warsaw: A Guide for Holocaust Survivors and their Heirs
This database is designed to be used after reading the World Jewish Restitution Organization’s webpage on Property Restitution in Warsaw – Information for Holocaust Survivors and Their Heirs. Please review that webpage, which includes an explanation of what is included in the database.
The database is intended for information purposes only, as a service to Holocaust survivors and their heirs. The information in the database is not intended as legal advice, and WJRO cannot make any assurances regarding its accuracy.
How to start a search:
1. Use only Latin characters.
2. Enter as much information as you have – either in the box for surname or the box for the address of the Warsaw property in question.
3. To view a full list of all the names and addresses in the database, leave all the boxes empty and click search.
4. The database can yield results even if you put in only part of a name or address. It can also yield results for names or addresses that sound similar, but are spelled differently, to those you enter.
5. To view surnames alphabetically, click on the box for surname and click the search button. Then click the link for "Owner’s Surname/Entity Name." The same process applies for viewing street addresses alphabetically.
6. The Line Number column refers to the line number of the property in Appendix 2 of the June 2016 City of Warsaw White Book.

WarsawFriendsPROPERTY RESTITUTION IN WARSAW: INFORMATION FOR HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS AND THEIR HEIRS
NEW SIX-MONTH DEADLINE SET BY POLAND
On September 17, 2016, a Polish law took effect that will terminate many open private property claims in the City of Warsaw filed after 1945 (called here “The Warsaw Law”) – unless property owners or their heirs come forward to reactivate their claim.
In response, WJRO has launched this new webpage as a service to Holocaust survivors and their heirs who may have owned property in Warsaw and therefore may be qualified to pursue their claim filed after 1945 under the Warsaw Decree. Click here to learn more about the Warsaw Decree.
This webpage features a unique searchable database assembled by WJRO to help you identify whether you or your relative may have filed a claim under the Warsaw Decree.
Today, thousands of cases remain open. Many Holocaust survivors do not remember that they filed claims after the Holocaust. Many of their heirs may not even know that their relative filed claims.
Please note: The new Warsaw Law does not create a process to file new claims. A claim must have already been filed with the City of Warsaw under the Warsaw Decree.
PURPOSE OF THIS WEBPAGE
This webpage is designed to help Holocaust survivors and their heirs answer several basic questions:
Might you or your relative have previously filed a claim under the Warsaw Decree of 1945?
If so, how can you preserve your property claim and pursue restitution?
What resources are available to help you?
SEARCH FOR YOUR CLAIM – WJRO’S WARSAW DATABASE
The new WJRO database is designed to help you identify if you or another owner to the same property may have filed a claim under the Warsaw Decree.
The City of Warsaw published a list of 2,613 street addresses for open claims in Appendix 2 of its June 2016 “White Book.” They did not, however, publish the names of the claimants or owners of the properties — only the street addresses.
WJRO’s database matches the 2,613 street addresses from the City’s list with property owners’ names found in the 1939/1940 Homeowners Directory for Warsaw or, where that was not possible, with the 1930 Homeowners Directory as well as through use of mortgage information.
