BONN (Dec. 18)
Political sources indicated here today that indemnification talks between the West German Government and Austria were expected to be resumed early next year.
Negotiations for a West German contribution to an Austrian fund for restitution to victims of the Nazi period in Austria have been deadlocked for more than a year because the West German Government claimed Austria had collaborated with Hitler and should indemnify its own victims of nazism.
According to reports. West Germany has offered to pay a total of 250,000,000 marks $60,000,000) to Austria for compensation of persons persecuted by nazism, for war victims and for postwar refugees.
