Some 16,000 Holocaust survivors in 60 countries received $16 million in compensation for unpaid insurance policies this week. The International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims mailed the one-time, token payments to survivors or their heirs who never received benefits from insurance policies they held during the Holocaust. These survivors were unable to produce documentation about their stolen policies.
