Charles Schumer is asking for Swiss bank funds to be used for Holocaust survivors in Brooklyn. The New York senator sent a letter to Judge Edward Korman stressing the needs of 30,000 Holocaust survivors in Brooklyn and trying to dissuade the judge from giving a majority of the money to survivors in Central Europe and the former Soviet Union. Schumer requested more than the $50,000 suggested by the special master in the case for the building of an assisted-living facility.
