  • The list of assets published on the website was prepared and transferred to us by the various entities that previously held them in trust. Although efforts are made to examine the information received from these entities, we cannot ensure that the lists we received are totally accurate, including the inclusion of assets that did not belong to Holocaust victims.
     
  • In addition, these lists include data regarding bank accounts. This information, which was transferred to us by the Parliamentary Inquiry Committee that was responsible for this matter in the past, has not been published in accordance with section 19 (a)(1) of the Law. Since the accounts have not yet been transferred by the banks, even though applications may be forwarded for their reinstatement based on this data, the applications cannot be processed until the information and the money has actually been received (such assets have been marked with a red flag on the list).
