U.S. and British officials announced that the first payments from an international fund set up by the two countries to benefit Holocaust survivors are expected to go out next month. Payments from the $57 million fund, which is separate from a fund set up by Switzerland last year, are slated to be distributed to Holocaust survivors in Eastern Europe through the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. Sixteen countries have so far made contributions to the fund, including most of the European countries with claims to residual Nazi-looted gold in the Tripartite Gold Commission’s pool.
