The Claims Conference called on Austria to release $210 million in payments pledged to Holocaust survivors. The call came at Wednesday’s annual meeting in New York of the Claims Conference’s board. In a 2001 agreement, Austria promised the funds to Jewish victims of Nazism, but the payout has been withheld pending the resolution of two outstanding class-action lawsuits against Austria by Holocaust survivors.
