Germany payments start to child survivors of Holocaust

Child survivors of the Holocaust have begun receiving additional financial assistance from Germany under a landmark agreement reached last year. The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany said Wednesday the $190 million fund represents symbolic financial compensation to acknowledge the unique trauma and hardship endured by child Holocaust survivors. The conference says payments of 2,500 euros ($2,715) are being made to the first 21,600 survivors in 52 countries.
