Legislation that will make it easier for Holocaust survivors to press restitution claims is expected to pass in Romania’s parliament next week.

Lawmakers said Tuesday they expect the bill, which removes barriers to claiming property, to succeed, Reuters reported.

Much of the Jewish property confiscated in Romania during the Holocaust was later taken over by the Communist government. Despite laws passed after the collapse of Communist rule, few people have been able to claim government-owned property.
