AMSTERDAM (Feb. 10)
Government monthly compensation payments to victims of Nazi persecution in The Netherlands during World War. II have been raised to 1500 Guilders to offset the rise in the cost of living. The increase will also apply to payments to victims of Japanese persecution in the Dutch East Indies during this period. Seven thousand of the 23,000 compensation payment applications in The Netherlands were made by Jews. Since processing so many applications is long, the government has agreed to make advance monthly payments to those whose applications have been under review longer than eight months.
There will be no Bulletin Monday, Feb. 18, due to Washington’s birthday, a postal holiday.
