A Commitment to the Jewish People…
The 1.5 million records contained in Project HEART’s online database consist of property addresses, lists of homeowners, professions, lists of known confiscated properties, business directories, insurance policies, and other archival information that can assist potential applicants in their research.
Project HEART’s Executive Director, Bobby Brown, stated that the addition of approximately 1 million records since the database was first posted on May 1, 2011, demonstrates Project HEART’s commitment to”list every piece of private property that we can find, for which the Jewish people declare they never received compensation.”
…And a New Call for Justice
“The Project HEART database will be instrumental in struggling for a measure of justice on behalf of Holocaust victims and their heirs,” said Natan Sharansky, the Chairman of the Jewish Agency. Sharansky added, “The records compiled in the Project HEART database serve as uncontroverted proof that the Holocaust was not only the greatest murder ever committed, but the greatest robbery in history. We are dedicated to the struggle to ensure that Holocaust victims and their heirs receive compensation and are proud that Project HEART is utilizing advanced technological tools to advance this goal.”Leah Nass, Deputy Minister for Senior Citizens, representing the Government of Israel, said, “Project HEART’s creation of the most comprehensive database of Holocaust era property records to date demonstrates our commitment to seek a measure of justice for Holocaust victims and their heirs.”
Why Project HEART is So Important… and So Effective
Launched in late February 2011, Project HEART seeks to identify Jewish Holocaust victims and their heirs worldwide whose families owned real estate, movable, immovable, or other intangible personal property that was confiscated, looted, or forcibly sold in countries governed or occupied by the Nazi forces or Axis powers during the Holocaust era. The only limitation for application is if restitution has been made to a victim or the victim’s heirs for that property after the Holocaust era; then they are not eligible for further restitution in connection with that property.The Project HEART database was specifically created to assist Holocaust victims and their heirs during the eligibility process. Individuals can access the database on the Project HEART website. To participate in Project HEART, individuals only need to fill out the Questionnaire that may be found on the website.

The online database will also serve as a powerful tool during future efforts to achieve restitution on behalf of eligible participants, since the records contained in the database will complement as well as legitimize the information submitted by Holocaust victims and their heirs.

A True “World-First”
“This is the first worldwide list of property confiscated, looted or forcibly sold during the Holocaust era to be made available to survivors and their heirs,” stated Anya Verkhovskaya, Administrative Project Director, who added, “the response to the database has been overwhelming, with approximately 100,000 hits happening each week.”Since it was launched, details about Project HEART’s purpose and the application process have been translated into 13 languages, and a 24-hour call center is operational in all languages. To date, the project has received tens of thousands of requests for additional information. Now that the online database contains 1.5 million property records, Project HEART officials anticipate an even greater response from Holocaust survivors and their heirs.
