Title 
Law XXV: Law on Condemnation of the Persecution that befell Hungarian Jews and on the Mitigation of its Consequences

Date
15 November 1946

Summary 
On 15 November 15 1946, Law No. XXV was promulgated. The Law was declaratory in nature and said little about indemnification. Section 2, paragraph 1 of the Law stated that the government would create a Fund to channel money in cases in which neither the original property owners nor their heirs were alive or could be identified. Paragraph 2 of the same section lists the persons who fall under the purview of the law. These are persons of the Jewish faith who perished on account of injury or other health damage related to persecution between 26 June 1941 and 31 December 1946. Section 3 of the law mandated that, with the exception of properties whose origin cannot be determined by the Ministry of Finance, all property which was taken abroad and returned to Hungary proper, must be given to the Fund. The Fund was endowed with legal personality by the law.
