What does the CIVS do ?

The CIVS provides the Prime Minister with the means to provide compensation for the material and financial spoliations that took place in France during the Occupation.

Are bank-related spoliations compensated ?

Bank-related compensation is governed by the Washington Agreement, signed between the French and American governments on 18 January 2001.

How do I submit a claim ?

Claimants must complete a questionnaire, available on this website, stating the name of the victim and the nature of the spoliation that took place.
