Establishment of the Fund for the Restoration of the Jewish Cemeteries in Austria

In 2001, the Austrian Federal Government and the Government of the United States of America signed the "Washington Agreement". This agreement on the settlement of open questions of compensation and restitution for victims of National Socialism also stipulated Austria's obligation under international law to restore and maintain known and unknown Jewish cemeteries in Austria.

In December 2010, the enactment of the "Federal Law on the Establishment of a Fund for the Restoration of the Jewish Cemeteries in Austria" (Federal Law Gazette I no. 99/2010) constituted a vital step towards the domestic implementation of this obligation.

Over a period of 20 years, more than 60 Jewish cemeteries throughout Austria will be safeguarded from ruin with the assistance of the "Fund for the Restoration of the Jewish Cemeteries in Austria".  +
