Our Aims

David Lewin is running the small Search & Unite office out of London, attempting to help the many who suspect that, despite the passage of so many years since World War II, someone may still exist somewhere "out there".

Another aspect of our work is locating people who have a right to reclaim property which was taken away by the State during the Nazi era and in post World War II Czechoslovakia and former homes which was declared to be to be State property.
In the Czech Republic today such property can, in many cases, be reclaimed.

A third group of searches is for people who have a right to reclaim Nazi-era looted art which is today in Austrian Institutions and which can be identified so that its former owners are known.
This has become possible as a result of the fact that on December 4, 1998, the Austrian parliament adopted a law on art restitution (Bundesgesetz über die Rückgabe von Kunstgegenständen) concerning art objects which had been stolen by the National Socialists and which today can be found in Austrian State museums and collections of art.

A further area of our activities is the research of some particular occurances during, or resulting from, the Holocaust - which today remain enigmas.

In their "Tales from the net" series the BBC has made a 2-minute film about one of our searches: the story of Betty. View it here.
