Germany to give Holocaust Survivors 245 million Euros Compensation

The payment of compensations to Holocaust survivors in the former Soviet Republics, which have not integrated into the European Union (EU), begins on November 1.

The total sum of compensations will be around 245 million euros, and the receivers are 80,000 Jewish people living in the countries of the post-Soviet space.

This decision was made as a result of talks between representatives of the German government and the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims (ICHEIC) that was set up by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, or Claims Conference, Head of the Ukrainian Centre for Holocaust Studies Anatoly Podolsky said.

“This is repentance and the acknowledgement of the fact that an odious dictatorial regime that killed people was in power in Germany in the period from 1933 to 1945. Speaking about Jewish communities, we should stress here that all those people were eliminated simply because they were born Jewish, not for their political views or armed resistance. This was a racial theory, where anti-Semitism – to be more exact, radical anti-Semitism, reigned supreme.”

The Claims Conference Commission is an organization that represents the interests of Holocaust Survivors. Its board of directors includes representatives of 27 Jewish organizations in various parts of the world.

Germany has been paying compensations for many years now. The last group covered by this programme includes Jewish people from the former Soviet republics. The Director of the Moscow Museum of the Russian Research and Educational Holocaust Centre Leonid Tyorushkin says:

“The majority of Holocaust survivors live in the former Soviet Union. The Holocaust Survivors category comprises ghetto and concentration camp prisoners. Most of them were children or teenagers at that time. Today they are around 80 or over 80. Of course, we should also mention here all those who were evacuated from the territories occupied by the Nazi troops and from the near-front territory.”

Beginning from November 1st, each Holocaust Survivor living in the former Soviet republics will receive a compensation of 2,556 euros. Special centres will open in big cities to help them with their applications.

    So are they now finished or will their offspring in 50 years want more ? What about the Germans asking the Romans to compensate for the brave rebels killed in the battle of the Teutoburg woods ?
    Ah I see, Eyeties got no money, I see… that was stupid of me.

    These were not death camp. They were holding centers. The All-lies already got their pound of flesh from the Germans. I know many elderly Germans who suffered during the war who could use that money. Germany doesn’t owe Jews anything.

    Old Nazis, not today’s German taxpayers, may owe compensation because Nazis alone were responsible for what they did.

    Any claims against the property of Nazi officials should have been made promptly after the war, not 70 years later. Today’s tax money for compensation comes from people who did not even exist during the war.

    Former Soviet republics fought the Nazis government and their debt to victims, if any, was paid in full by the blood of their soldiers lost in that war.

    If one believes in personal responsibility for wrongdoing, then it is wrong to make everyone pay for the crimes of a few. In fact, that is exactly what Nazis did – if a prisoner escaped, the other prisoners would be punished. That is called “group punishment” and it lacks every aspect of fairness expected of a modern society.

    Zionist demands of emigrants to Israel is a large percent of any allotment given to Jews in “tax”. Let us hope that these Russian Jews remain in Europe and spend that money more wisely than to assist the Israeli war machine bent on stealing all of Palestine and the rest of Middle East.
