Polish President Andrzej Duda approved a law on Saturday that will make it difficult for Jews to recover property lost during and after World War II.

The legislation refers to claims on property stolen by the Nazi Germany and then seized by the communist regime in Poland.

The law establishes a 30-year limit to challenge these confiscations.

As most happened shortly after the war, many of the pending claims will be filed now.
