Kurzfassung auf Englisch:

Introduction Do present-day Palestinians living in refugee camps have a right to return to their homes and to have their property recovered namely in virtue of the history of having been forcefully and deliberately expelled from their homeland? This essay presents two comments on doubts one might have with respect to the validity of the Palestinian claims to reparation. These doubts reflect the two sets of questions that have defined, at least in part, the philosophical subject of Historical Injustice: First, the questions arising from the non-identity problem as introduced by Derek Parfit in his work Reasons and Persons, and, second, the questions arising from Jeremy Waldron’s supersession thesis as presented in his article “Superseding Historic Injustice”. My comments are meant to show that the non-identity problem is of little practical significance for assessing the validity of the right of return of the Palestinian refugees. And the same is true for the supersession thesis.
