Mayor of Jersey City, Steve Fulop recently announced plans to urgently move this monument into storage without any reason. In his arrogant, racist and anti-Polish tweets, Fulop insults Marshal of the Senate of the Republic of Poland Mr. Karczewski.

Stop ACT 1226 and say NO to unjustified restitution claims

Poland is targeted through this bill for “heirless property” restitution  payments for billions of dollars. Restitution for heirless property is against the law of the United States, Western legal tradition and the Polish law.  In all Western countries, the US included, heirless property escheats to the state.

Stop ACT 1226 and say NO to unjustified restitution claims

In WWII Poland suffered proportionally the greatest human and material losses and was never properly compensated for these losses.

Poland compensated American nationals whose assets had been nationalized or wrongfully seized and the United States provided indemnity to Poland against any further property claims. Therefore, Bill H.R. 1226 violates the terms of the 1960 bilateral treaty.

Poland returned Jewish communal property pursuant to the 1997 law on the relationship between the Polish State and Jewish religious organizations. Over 2,500 communal properties, including synagogues, cemeteries and cultural centers, have been either compensated for or returned.

Holocaust survivors who were Polish citizens during WWII have been receiving financial assistance from the Polish Government regardless of their current place of residence.

This bill is unjust and hurtful to millions of Poles who were the victims of the Germans during WWII!

Movie based on a true story of mass execution of Polish officers by Soviet Union during WWII. Soviet leaders insisted for decades that the Polish officers found at Katyn had been killed by the invading Germans in 1941.

Finally in 1992 the Russian government released documents proving that the Soviet Politburo and the NKVD had been responsible for the massacre and cover-up and revealing that there may have been more than 20,000 victims.
