NY Holocaust survivors to reclaim state funds

NEW YORK – Holocaust survivors in New York or the heirs of those who lost property during the Holocaust may soon have access to money being held by the local government, state officials said on Monday.
The comptroller of the State of New York partnered its office of unclaimed funds with Project HEART (Holocaust Era Asset Restitution Taskforce) in August of last year, and released a progress report this week to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day.
“Our database is public, and we turned over to HEART over 28 million records to comb through,” said spokesman Nikki Jones. “We’ve made a special case just for this project.”
