The Good Will Foundation (GWF) invites the eligible Holocaust survivors and their heirs to submit an application for one-time payment of symbolic compensation for the private real property expropriated in Lithuania during the occupation of totalitarian regimes.
The program is a result of legislation (Law No. XI-1470, as amended) which was introduced in November, 2022 by Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė and signed into law by President Gitanas Nausėda on December 29, 2022. It aims to provide a measure of justice for Holocaust survivors and their families who were excluded from previous restitution legislation in Lithuania. The GWF has been designated to administer this program and distribute between €5-10 million to eligible applicants.
The application and other related documents can be found in the link below:
When filling the application, please follow the Processing Guidelines of Compensation for Immovable Private Property. Also, we recommend to carefully read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
The deadline to apply is December 31, 2023. No application received by the GWF after the December 31, 2023 deadline will be considered for payment.
The GWF Board evaluates the validity of the received applications no later than December 23, 2024 and determines the equal amount of compensation to be allocated.
