ROMANIA approves financial support for Holocaust survivors


YNET – BUCHAREST— Romania’s parliament has approved legislation allowing direct financial support to Holocaust survivors in the former Nazi ally state during World War Two, the architect of the law said on Friday.

Lawmaker Silviu Vexler said beneficiaries would include those deported to ghettos or concentrations camps, survivors of the death trains and forced labor detachments, refugees and those imprisoned for ethnic reasons or forcefully removed from their homes.

“This law is a symbolic gesture to further recognize the terrifying suffering of people who have been through the darkest of moments,” said Vexler, who represents the Federation of the Jewish Communities in Romania.

The law will set a monthly payment of up to 400 lei (NIS 351) per month for each year of deportation or detention. It will be enforced from July 1.

Its provisions also apply to survivors of the Holocaust who no longer have Romanian citizenship or reside in the country, as well as to the living partner of a Holocaust survivor who passed away if they did not remarry, Vexler said.

It was not immediately clear how many people might be eligible for the payments or what the total cost might be to the Romanian state.

Romania was an ally of Nazi Germany until August 1944 when it changed sides to the Allies, and much of the Jewish property seized during the war was later nationalized by the communist dictatorship that followed.

An international commission, in a 2004 report, put the total number of Romanian and Ukrainian Jews who perished in territories under Romanian administration at 280,000 to 380,000.

Romania used to have a pre-war Jewish population of about 800,000 but now fewer than 11,000 Jews live in the European Union member state, which has a total population of around 20 million.

After the collapse of communist rule in 1989, Romania passed laws to return property to its original owners but the process has been hampered by red tape.

    Well, since they’d have to be 85+ years old, The Govt won’t be out much more than an empty gesture. Probably just a scam to steal money from non-existent people.

    What a bunch of dupes. There were no death camps,

    Here they are playing soccer in the ‘death camps’ at 13:29

    And there are plenty more videos, of Jewish women dancing in theatre productions in Auschwitz, in rehabilitation classes learning how to use sewing machines, how to grow food etc etc, preparing for deportation to Madagascar, later changed to Palestine, to which 60,000 Jews were sent, thought the rest could not continue as Allied naval hostility made any further transportation unsafe.

    After WWII, well over 4 million Jews claimed compensation for having been in ‘death camps’, more Jews than had lived in all of German-occupied territory.

    A real death camp, run as Jew Eisenhower ran them, would have killed all the Jews in all of German-occupied Europe in far less than 6 months at a similar rate, if that was what the Germans really intended, and given their extreme sophistication, they could have done so if that was their real intent, which it was patently not. Newspapers record that nearly one million German prisoners were starved to death in just 21 days after WWII, in nothing more complicated than fields surrounded by barbed wire, with no food or water allowed.

    “Romania was an ally of Nazi Germany until August 1944 when it changed sides to the Allies, and much of the Jewish property seized during the war was later nationalized by the communist dictatorship that followed.”

    So the property was returned if it was ‘nationalized’ and given to the Bolshevik Jews.
    Why not ask for the compensation from the Bolshevik bureaucratic Jews and their descendants?

    And yes, Eisenhower (the Jews) killed German POWS in open air camps, in Germany, AFTER the war had ended. James Bacque wrote “Other Losses” to memorialize this.

    From Amazon:
    “Other Losses caused an international scandal when first published in 1989 by revealing that Allied Supreme Commander Dwight Eisenhower’s policies caused the death of some 1,000,000 German captives in American and French internment camps through disease, starvation and exposure from 1944 to 1949, as a direct result of the policies of the western Allies, who, with the Soviets, ruled as the Military Occupation Government over partitioned Germany from May 1945 until 1949.

    An attempted book-length disputation of Other Losses, was published in 1992, featuring essays by British, American and German revisionist historians (Eisenhower and the German POWs: Facts Against Falsehood, edited by Ambrose & Günter). However, that same year Bacque flew to Moscow to examine the newly-opened KGB archives, where he found meticulously and exhaustively documented new proof that almost one million German POWs had indeed died in those Western camps.

    One of the historians who supports Bacque’s work is Colonel Ernest F. Fisher, 101st Airborne Division, who in 1945 took part in investigations into allegations of misconduct by U.S. troops in Germany and later became a senior historian with the United States Army. In the foreword to the book he states: “Starting in April 1945, the United States Army and the French Army casually annihilated about one million [German] men, most of them in American camps … Eisenhower’s hatred, passed through the lens of a compliant military bureaucracy, produced the ­horror of death camps unequalled by anything in American military ­history … How did this enormous war crime come to light? The first clues were uncovered in 1986 by the author James Bacque and his ­assistant.”
