Claims Conference to spend extra $67 million


The Claims Conference over the next three years will allocate an extra $67 million on programs benefiting Nazi victims.

The new funds will add to the $300 million the Claims Conference already planned to spend on such programs from funds acquired in the sale of unclaimed Holocaust-era Jewish property in the former East Germany.

In a statement, the Claims Conference said the new money is meant to make up for the decline in funding for social welfare programs as a result of the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims ending its allocations.
