GERMANY – Holocaust survivors to receive additional $500 million


TIMES OF ISRAEL – The Claims Conference, which manages aid to Holocaust survivors, has negotiated a budget increase through 2018, including the largest one-time increase in home care funding the organization has ever secured.

In talks with the German government, the Claims Conference secured nearly $312 million in homecare funding for survivors in 2016, approximately $350 million for 2017 and more than $380 million for 2018, according to a Tuesday press release. The additional funding for homecare totals some $500 million from the German government.

The most significant part of the agreement, according to Claims Conference Executive Vice President Greg Schneider, is that it removes the cap on the number of homecare hours many survivors can receive. Previously, survivors were entitled to a maximum of 25 hours per week of homecare. Now, survivors of ghettos and concentration camps may receive unlimited homecare. Other survivors may receive a maximum of 40 hours per week.

“Homecare is a key component of providing a dignified life to Holocaust survivors,” Schneider told JTA. “By waiving a cap for people who were in camps and ghettos, the German government has shown that they understand that and are willing to address the need.”

The Claims Conference also disburses funding from the Austrian government, as well as proceeds from recovered Jewish property, a private grant, and funds from a settlement with the Swiss Banks. In total — including social services and direct payments to survivors — the Claims Confererence will distribute some $835 million this year. The group provides aid to 121,000 survivors, including homecare aid to 67,000.

Negotiations for Tuesday’s increase began in December, when the Claims Conference set up a direct negotiation working group with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble.

The agreement is subject to approval by the German Parliament.

“We have been fighting for the rights of survivors for 65 years and this new agreement will have a huge impact on the most vulnerable, poor and disabled of survivors,” said Claims Conference President Julius Berman in a statement.

    Hilarious. There are only 1 million of these lying parasites still living officially, though the West German Finance Minister stated in the mid-1970’s how there were well over 4 million claimants then for holocaust compensation after having stated how they had all ‘been in the death camps’ or having been in the camps, when the entire official Jewish population in all of occupied Europe had been 3.5 million or so, with 2.2 million Jews having sat out the war in Russia, and so on, with 500,000 never having been deported from France, 60,000 sent to Palestine by the NSDAP after training in agriculture and machine work to help them look after themselves. They should all be in prison for fraud. Those Germans must have been lousy shots if they missed them all at close range like that, for so many years.

    There are sources that affirm that Germany is paying incredible amounts of money to the “HOLO-HOAX survivors that now amount to more than 4 million in Israel, Germany, UK, France and US. I taught Hitler killed them all. There were Six Million death, plus 4 million survivors after more than 70 years.
    Angela Merkel is destroying Germany for the third time, she is nothing but a piece of crap, a bastard mixture of gentile and parasite.

    Back in 49′ the so called West Germany was founded in the rothschild villa in Konigstein. Even today the NGO type German government operates without a peace treaty, the German constitution is not used and Germany is occupied by the ‘main allied victor’ US which itself has a ZOG.
    Jews call the Germans Amalekites and all of them must be eradicated incl. their ‘cows’.
    According to the ‘sort-off’ judaic king memonidas the exception to this rule is when they adopt the noahide laws AND pay a tribute a tax to the jews. This is what the minions German government is doing.

    Germans are a defanged bunch thanks to years of re-education and further indoctrination as they traverse through life and the various institutions they put their faith in for the purposes of ‘higher’ education.

    What most people don’t understand is that in order ro protect their children from these elements of subversion they must not expose their children to television most expecially during their formative years.

    Teach their children to place priority in the family and not allow school or state to claim authority of their minds.

    The solution to every problem is rooted always in simplicity, it starts at the lowest levels of community and if the family is fractured then any meaningful resistance is impossible.

    Those who adopt consumerism, technology, smut and status are only on a current to the peecipice of a very steep fall.

    If the rats have your mind they will likewise take the minds of your seed. Self perpetuating,
