West Germany’s lower House of Parliament, the Bundestag, voted this week-end approval of agreements between the Federal Republic of Germany on the one hand, and Norway and Denmark on the other hand, providing indemnification for victims of Nazi crimes in the two Scandinavian countries.

Norway will receive, under the pacts, $14,000,000, while Denmark will get $4,000,000 from the German Government. The payments will be made in three installments, beginning May 1, 1961.

The German Government is still conducting negotiations for similar indemnification to Nazi victims with Britain, Belgium, France, Greece, Luxembourg and The Netherlands.
