Special to The Jewish News

kyrocketing real es-
tate prices have trig-
gered a worldwide
search for Israel's "lost"
landowners.
Although Jews have been
reclaiming the land of Israel
for most of this century,
there is plenty left to reclaim
by owners who may not know
they own it or cannot find
it, Martin . Silvin recently
explained.
He estimated the unclaim-
ed land's worth at between
$60 million and $70 million
at current prices.
Mr. Sivin, a lawyer for the
Israel Development Co.,
displayed a map of central
Israel showing the densely
populated Tel Aviv, Rishon le-
Zion and Holon areas. The
map showed them to be heavi-
ly built up and crisscrossed
with roads.
But Mr. Sivan pointed to
white patches on the map.

because we don't know who
really owns it," Mr. Sivin said.
There are two types of
"lost" landowners, he said.
The first type is the descen-
dant of an original landowner
and doesn't know it. The se-
cond knows about the in-
herited claim but can't find
the land or the deed; some-
times the land doesn't exist.
"The first type has land but
no owner, and the second type
has an owner but no land,"
Mr. Sivin said. He said that
about 70 percent of the "lost"
landowners fall into the first
category.
"No other nation in the
world has such a problem of
minorities living outside the
homeland," he observed.
The ownership of the lands
were lost because some people
never told their children
about it or did not report
ownership of the land abroad
for tax purposes, he said.
Some Americans are descen-
dants of Jews who owned land
but were killed in the
Holocaust.
Trying to locate all of the
"lost" landowners in the
United States, he has iden-
