Switzerland agreed to pay $118,000 to a Jewish brother and sister whose parents were killed after they were kicked out of the country during World War II. Switzerland said it would pay Charles and Sabine Sonabend in an out-of-court settlement to cover their costs from a legal battle with the government, but stopped short of calling the payment “compensation” out of fear it would encourage other claims from Holocaust survivors.
