Austria plans to pay the nation’s Jewish community $22.5 million for assets seized by the Nazis. The government contribution comes in addition to $16 million promised to the community earlier this week by the nation’s provincial governments. The money will be used for Jewish schools, the reconstruction of a synagogue and communal security needs.
