Woman takes possession of villa seized from father

A Baltimore County woman who spent four years battling the Romanian government to reclaim her father's seaside villa - confiscated by the Fascists in 1940 - took possession of the home Monday after traveling to the Black Sea town of Constanta with U.S. Ambassador Jim Rosapepe, according to the U.S. Embassy in Bucharest.

Jacqueline Waldman, 53, a chemistry instructor at Goucher College in Towson, had been rebuffed by the Romanian government, despite winning the right to the house in three Romanian courts. The government ended its opposition after receiving a letter on her behalf in July from U.S. Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin, who personally delivered it to Romanian President Emil Constantinescu.
