Holocaust meeting calls on nations to do more for survivors

Representatives of 39 nations urged governments on Wednesday to do more for Holocaust survivors in the remaining time they have. The nations concluded their two-day “Living with Dignity” conference in Prague by calling for the benefits the survivors get not to be

taxed and counted toward other benefit programs because it reduces their ability to qualify for low income programs. The representatives from governments and non-governmental organizations also called for the development of special pension programs and advocated that property belonging to Jewish families who were completely wiped should be sold to finance social welfare programs, among other things.
