GERMANY’S Finance Ministry confirmed yesterday that it had reached agreement with the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany to provide additional financial assistance to child survivors of the Holocaust.
Claims conference executive vice-president Greg Schneider, who was involved in the negotiations, said that these new payments would be in addition to other compensation received.
The agreement to provide one-off payments of 2,500 euros (£1,980) for Jewish children who were in concentration camps, ghettos or spent at least six months in hiding is expected to cost £140 million.
The finance is to help with increasing problems stemming from malnutrition and psychological trauma.
“All of this is being driven by the fact that we’re in the final years,” said Mr Schneider in New York.
“If there’s going to be any final message that the German government or the German people are going to give to survivors, these are literally the last years to do it.”
