Germany Approves Proposal to Expand Pension Payments for Jewish Ghetto Workers

FSWC Reports:

From the Associated Press via ynetnews.com:

The German cabinet has approved a proposal that would give thousands of elderly Jews additional pension payments for work they were forced to do under the Nazis in ghettos.

The plan will see all payments backdated to 1997, when Germany began recognizing work in ghettos as eligible for pension payments. Until now, recipients have only received payments backdated four years from when they applied.
