Dear Dana,

Thank you so much for keeping us updated on this important topic. Late, much too late for nearly all Holocaust survivors, the Romanian government adopts Romania's responsability for the crimes committed during WW2.

You are right, the forms (in Romanian language) in accordance with the Romanian law 189/2000 are available for download at the CSIER (Centre for the History of Jewish History in Romania) site:

However, from my understanding there is NO "conditio sine qua non" whatspever between the application itself and a donation to CSIER. Personally I'd tend to be reserved with respect to such a donation.

Dear all,
I come back with some details. The place where the request and the forms
are to be submitted is the Centre for the History of Jewish History in
Romania. One their website, access "Formulare tip legea 189".

Unfortunately, the information is only presented in Romanian. I suggested
the person I have just talked to have everything translated into English as

The procedure appears to entail the following steps, from what I can
- a written request by the individual
- a declaration, issued by a Notary's office in Romania, where two
witnesses confirm the case of deportation/evacuation, depending on the
case, including the conditions of persecutions

The centre asks for a donation of 85 USD or 65 euros to be transferred in
their account (there is another form for this).

See this section of their website.
