Germany to pay an additional $300 million in restitution to Holocaust survivors


Approximately 80,000 Jews who fled the Nazis for eastern Europe will be eligible for the additional funds

NEW YORK (JTA) – Germany has agreed to provide restitution payments to an additional 80,000 Jews in what Claims Conference officials are describing as a historic breakthrough.

The agreement, which was reached Monday in negotiations between German officials and Claims Conference representatives, is likely to result in additional payments of approximately $300 million. Most of the money will go to Nazi victims in the former Soviet Union who have never before qualified for pensions or payments from German restitution money.

“This is the last group of people who have never received any compensation,” Greg Schneider, the executive vice president of the Claims Conference, told JTA in a telephone interview from Washington, where the negotiations took place.

“For people who suffered during the time of the Shoah, recognition from Germany is vital. To be able to do that at this stage, 60 years after the first restitution agreement, for 80,000 people, is tremendous,” he said. “For a survivor now in their old age to finally get acknowledgment from Germany is critically important.”

Most of the money will come from the Hardship Fund, which grants one-time payouts of 2,556 euro — approximately $3,150 — to Jews who fled the Nazis as they swept eastward through Europe. Until now, those payments were not available to Jews in Ukraine, Russia and other non-European Union countries in Eastern Europe. Applications for the fund will be available starting Nov. 1.

In many of those countries, the lump sum could amount to four years of regular pension payments, according to Schneider.

In Monday’s negotiations, Germany also agreed to equalize the monthly pensions it sends to survivors around the world, correcting what until now had been a disparity that saw survivors living in western countries receiving more than those in eastern countries. All survivors will now receive the equivalent of approximately $370 per month.

Germany also agreed to relax the eligibility rules for those who receive restitution payments for being forced into hiding during the Nazi era. Until now, only those who went into hiding for at least 12 months were eligible; now the eligibility threshold will be six months.

    The holoCo$t really makes a lot of money for these people, doesn’t it? As the jews say, “There’s no business like Shoah business.

    Absolutely correct!

    “Germany has agreed to provide restitution payments to an additional 80,000 Jews in what Claims Conference officials are describing as a historic breakthrough.”

    This is the smartest way to officially finance the terrorist entity! If Jews were not running Germany, there is no way Germany would ever have paid one single penny to those Jewish liars and murderers!

    Could we get a follow-up? How long will it take to issue the payments, how many will actually get something, and how much? How much will wind up in the World Zionist Organization coffers?
    It stinks. Germany can’t wait to cough up more money on the Great Hoax.

    Actually, the definition of a holohoax “survivor” is any jew who MERELY resided, or was born (even if they moved away), in the countries where the alleged deaths occurred, or camps were located.

    I’m not sure whether “survivor” also applies to any and all direct relatives as well. In other words, whether “survivor” continues into perpetuity.

    I once helped an old jewish woman across the street. I think about that old lady all the time now and I’m suffering and have night mares about what would have happened to her if I didn’t help her. She said she was a survivor. Does this qualify me to get a few shekels from Germany too? It’s all true.

    It is the jews who should be paying compensation to the Russians.
    They hijacked Russia courtesy of JP Morgan at the time of its revolution and enslaved the Russian people for some 70 years.
    It is Jews who are the masters of ‘concentration’ camps and holocausts.
    Ask the Russians who suffered both.
    Who set up the predeceasors to the KGB?
    Jews.
    Who were the torturers and oppressors?
    Jews.
    About the Russians got thoroughly compensated. – by Israel.

    This is Jewish Parasitism at its best.

    Jews control the German government all the way to the dumbass Merkel.
    Germans, I hope you have fun paying billions and billions to Israel.

    Amazing how there are more ‘holocaust victims’ alive today than there was 40 years ago. You’d think the dumb shits would have worked it out by now.
