Germany to Compensate Child Holocaust Survivors

FSWC Reports:

From with contribution from the Associated Press:

Almost 70 years after the end of World War II, 75,000 Holocaust survivors will finally get recognition from the German government. The Claims Conference said Thursday it reached an agreement with the German government for $250 million in additional financial assistance for child survivors of the Holocaust. 

The fund and the German Finance Ministry agreed late Wednesday to one-time payments of 2,500 euros ($3,280 or NIS 12,000) for special psychological and medical care for survivors.
