The Nazis and their state-sponsored cohorts stole mercilessly from the Jews of Europe. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, returning survivors had to navigate a frequently unclear path to recover their property from governments and neighbors who had failed to protect them and who often had been complicit in their persecution. While the return of Nazi-looted art has garnered the most media attention, and there have been well-publicized settlements involving stolen Swiss bank deposits and unpaid insurance policies, there is a larger piece of Holocaust injustice that has not been adequately dealt with: stolen land and buildings, much of which today still remain unrestituted. This book is about the less publicized area of post-Holocaust restitution involving immovable (real) property confiscated from European Jews and others during World War II. In 2009, 47 countries convened in Prague to deal with the lingering problem of restitution of pre-war private, communal and heirless property stolen in the Holocaust. The outcome was the issuance by 47 states of the Terezin Declaration on Holocaust Era Assets and Related Issues, which aimed, among other things, to ´´rectify the consequences´´ of the wrongful property seizures. This book sets forth the legal history of Holocaust immovable property restitution in each of the Terezin Declaration signatory states. It also analyses how each of the 47 countries has fulfilled the standards of the Guidelines and Best Practices of the Terezin Declaration, issued in 2010 in conjunction with the establishment of the European Shoah Legacy Institute (ESLI) to monitor compliance. The book is based on the Holocaust (Shoah) Immovable Property Restitution Study commissioned by ESLI, written by the authors and issued in Brussels in 2017 before the European Parliament.

Searching for a safe haven for her child sends a woman into the arms of the enemy and in the path of a revolt. All Iris Jenson wants is a safe place to raise her autistic six-year-old son Thomas. She thinks she´s found it on Haven, an Earther colony located within the Kalquorian Empire´s borders. Making a fresh start under the watchful eyes of Earth´s former enemy has its challenges, but it also possesses opportunities to live free of fear, something Iris hasn´t had in a long time. Love is an added surprise when Haven´s governor Dramok Ospar and his clanmates Nobek Jol and Imdiko Rivek enter the young widow and child´s lives. Trouble is brewing on Haven Colony, however. Insurgent Earthers want to free themselves of Kalquor´s influence, and Kalquor itself is on the brink of a revolt, led by the shadowy figure known only as the Basma. Then a violent ghost from Iris´ past reappears and threatens to snatch Thomas from those who love him. Ospar´s clan races against time to save Haven from a bloody rebellion and an innocent child from the grasp of a monster.
I have always known that immortality is possible in this life. I am not talking about being immortal by being remembered in this life via having children or making great achievement so that my name will be eternal. What I mean is the true immortality; in the sense that a person will live forever in body and soul. This is the immortality I have been searching for. It means living forever. This book has a secret that will enable people to have such an eternal life.
