December 8, 1965
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Union of Italian Jewish Communities protested today that West German plans to defer compensation payments to a special group of victims of Nazism were causing “resentment and distrust.”

The Union made its protest to the West German Ambassador in Rome, asking that West Germany cancel the plans which would defer payments from a special $300,000,000 hardship fund to claimants, mostly Jews, who were in Iron Curtain countries in October, 1953, the original deadline for filing such claims, and hence unable to file.
