Austria signed an agreement with the United States and five European states to set up a $360-million fund to compensate slave laborers from the Nazi era. Under the pact, Austria will pay an estimated 150,000 survivors, most of them non-Jews from many European countries. Austria is also holding talks about providing compensation to Austrian Jews whose property was looted by the Nazis.
