New proposal will move compensation cases for property lost under Nazis and Communists from public committees to court system; Jewish groups in Poland say they will not accept changes.

The Polish government has decided to fundamentally change the process for returning Jewish property lost in the Holocaust or under the former Communist government, despite continued opposition from the Jewish community itself.

Under the new proposal, the issue will no longer be handled by joint government and community public committees, and claims will be go through the courts system.
