A group of German companies is prepared to offer Holocaust survivors up to $3.8 billion to settle claims over Nazi-era slave labor, The Washington Post reported. Lawyers for the survivors said the offer, which would give each victim a lump sum of roughly $200, was far too small. Representatives of the two sides are slated to meet in Washington on Wednesday and Thursday to try to resolve the question of how to compensate as many as 2.4 million survivors used as slave laborers by Nazi Germany.
