Austrian Victims of Nazi Regime Reminded of Deadline on Filing Claims

The United Restitution Office noted today that October 11 will be the deadline for certain claims of Austrian victims of the Nazi regime, for compensation under the West German indemnification law.

The organization said that Austrian nations who were victims of Nazi persecution and had emigrated from German territory within the boundaries existing on December 31, 1937, may, under certain conditions, file indemnification claims with West German compensation authorities.

The office also said that, if an opinion recently expressed by a West German legal expert is supported by the West German Government, Nazi victims who emigrated from Austria also would be eligible for the indemnification payments now accorded to stateless persons and refugees by West Germany.
