Download PDF for this date

The filing deadline for the submission of compensation claims under the Greek indemnification law has been extended for a 60-day period by the Greek Cabinet for the benefit only of Nazi victims residing outside of Greece, it was announced here today. Claims must be filed by lawyers accredited to the Greek courts.

The Cabinet’s action in extending the deadline date when claims must reach the Greek authorities from December 1,1961 to January 31, 1962, followed representations made by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.
