Board of Deputies Vice President condemns decision to ratify Polish Restitution Bill

Board of Deputies Vice President David Mendoza-Wolfson has condemned the decision to ratify the Restitution Bill passed by the Polish Senate last week.

David said: “By ratifying a law that legalises theft, Poland is sliding backwards towards decline. Until it reverses this measure, Poland’s Government is complicit in the dispossession of Polish citizens. The attitude of its leaders in penalising Holocaust survivors brings shame on the country.”
