Poles profit from murdering Jews, but others profit still more

Media made some fuss over the change in Polish law under which Jewish property confiscated during the Holocaust would now be returned only through court proceedings, rather than via the simple administrative procedure which was in place before. Certainly, that introduces some hurdles for potential heirs, but they are not insurmountable.

Poland greatly profited from the Holocaust by confiscating the real estate property of its two-million-plus Jews, many of whom were affluent. And yet, Poland is perhaps the only ex-communist country that actively works to return that property to the heirs of its rightful owners.
