Some Holocaust survivors will receive an increase in compensation payments as a result of an agreement negotiated Wednesday by the Claims Conference with the German government. The Article 2 Fund, which currently pays more than 46,000 Jewish Holocaust survivors in 40 countries, will now distribute monthly payments of approximately $290, up from about $275, according to the Claims Conference. Monthly payments from the Central and Eastern European Fund, which pays 16,000 people in 23 countries, will increase from about $137 to $145.
