Begin quote

The JUST Act is designed to build on the international Terezin Declaration on Holocaust Era Assets and Related Issues of 2009, which affirms that the protection of property rights is an essential component of a democratic society based on the rule of law and recognizes the importance of restituting or compensating Holocaust-related confiscations made during the Holocaust-era between 1933 and 1945.

So what else is new?  For one thing, I notice that “restituting” has now become a verb.

Here is an example of this new verbs used in a sentence.  Victims of Jewing are restituting even more cash.

A German woman is seen here  “Restituting” herself!

He survived the Holocaust, only to spend months in prison for being gay when he returned home.

And now, 99-year-old Wolfgang Lauinger has been denied compensation by Germany.

Wolfgang Lauinger  wants money from the German Government.

The article is a little vague, but apparently Lauinger “survived” the Holocaust by moving to America, but when he got back to Germany in 1950, he was locked up in Germany for being gay in public.  Now he wants money.

It is unclear in the article why the Germans don’t want to pay him , but apparently, he was never actually convicted.  He just spent 5 months in jail while awaiting trial.
