Two States in Germany Recommend Increase of Indemnification Funds

The steering committee of the West Berlin parliament has approved a supplementary appropriation of $3,500,000 for indemnification, thus raising the total amount made available for this purpose in the current budgetary year to $27,400,000. The additional allocation is necessary, Senator Joachim Lipschitz told the parliament, mainly to pay indemnification pensions to Nazi victims.

In Lower Saxony, the State Government has submitted to the Landtag a similar request for an additional appropriation of $3,500,000, which would increase the state’s total indemnification expenditure in the current budgetary year to ten million dollars.
