As we report elsewhere this week, the Prime Minister of Romania has announced that the deadline for filing claims for restitution payments for those who once held property in pre-war Romania is November 14, 2001.
According to a statement by the Association of Jewish Romanian Americans, a “letter of intent” must be filed with the Romanian Ambassador in Washington DC by November 14, 2001 and documentation of claims must be produced within eighteen months thereafter. Registered letters should be sent to:
Ambassador Sorin Ducaru
Embassy of Romania
1607 23 Street NW
Washington, DC 20008
Those wishing to file a claim are urged to confirm the procedure with the Romanian Embassy at 202-387-6901.
