German and U.S. negotiators plan to meet Monday in Berlin to sign an accord creating a $5.2 billion fund for Holocaust-era slave and forced laborers. Some 240,000 slave laborers, about 140,000 of whom are Jewish, are expected to receive as much as $7,500 each from the fund. More than 1 million forced laborers will get up to $2,500 each.
