Extension of Austrian Deadline for Claims is Not Intended for Jews

The extension of the deadline for the registration of claims by victims of the Nazi era in Austria, to March 31, 1964, does not apply to Jewish Nazi victims from Austria, Dr. F. L. Brassloff, of the United Restitution Organization, said today.

Dr. Brassloff said the indemnification claims of such Jews were covered by other legal measures. He said the extension was provided under an amendment to a law regulating the registration of damages caused by resettlement or expulsion. He explained it applied to “Volksdeutsche” and expellees.
