Who We Are
Klein, Solomon & Urbach, LLC, is an international association of lawyers, established to exclusively serve Holocaust survivors and their heirs for the return of property wrongfully seized before and during the Holocaust.
Nazi Germany systematically looted artwork, artifacts, antiques, and other valuables. It is now possible to trace these items and in many cases, obtain their recovery. There is no set deadline on many of these claims. Many items have been kept in hiding for decades and are only now appearing. We are in contact with the German Government on a regular basis, advocating the rights of Holocaust victims.
Using information from our clients and records kept by local governments, KSU establishes the current street address and city or town where a claim is located. We search court records, mortgage books, old maps and even phone books — any source that may assist us in establishing a rightful claim.
KSU's main office is in New York City; it's
European associates research local archives and advance individual claims.
KSU has organized Congressional hearings on Holocaust Restitution in 2002 and 2004 and before the European Union in 2002 and 2003. More recently, in 2007, hearings were held before the European Committee on Foreign Affairs. Negotiations are pending with the Polish municipalities of Lodz and Krakow, among others.Currently, there is no restitution law in Poland. We review cases in anticipation of a restitution law being passed in the near future.
