The Roman Catholic Church in Germany said it will soon start making payments to survivors who were forced to work for the church as Nazi slave laborers. Some 1,000 survivors of the 10,000 who were forced to work for the church are expected to receive about $2,200 apiece under the program. Most of the forced laborers came from Poland.
