Galati Jewish brothers’ case may generate Holocaust Law

The example of Devy and Sami Abraham, two Jews deported to Transdniester who have been awarded by a Galati Court RON 360,000 in damages for the abuses committed by the Antonescu regime, may be taken by he other Romanian Holocaust survivors, ‘Evenimentul Zilei’ reads. There are just about 300 survivors still alive in Romania. This is the opinion of the President of the Association of Romanian Jews Victims of the Holocaust, Liviu Beris, himself a survivor of the biggest Transdniester camp, Moghilev.

‘The decision is clearly substantiated and the reason I’m saying this is that I know Devy Abraham and I also know how marked he was by that terrifying experience. The court’s decision will very likely convince other survivors to take the matter to court,’ Liviu Beris says.

At the same time, the Director of the Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania, Mihai Ionescu, believes that, as long as the courts could be faced with true avalanches of claims similar to the one introduced by the Abraham brothers in 2005, a law granting compensations to the victims of the Holocaust would be much more effective.
