German Government to Quadruple Payments to 'Holocaust' Survivors


The fake “Holocaust” narrative and the outrageous Jewish racket it has promoted never ends – it only gets worse, even over 70 years after the event allegedly happened.

The Jerusalem Post reported yesterday:

Holocaust survivors are set to receive an upgrade in the compensation they receive from the German government, after an agreement was signed on Thursday between the finance ministries of Israel and Germany.

The Holocaust Survivors’ Rights Authority – which is housed within the Finance Ministry and leads the initiative to improve the conditions of Holocaust survivors in Israel – assessed that there was a need to increase the stipends the German government pays directly to survivors.

The lengthy negotiation between the authorities resulted in the signing of a memorandum of understanding, according to which survivors will receive an additional 100 Euros to 400 Euros per month. This increase will raise total funds that Germany pays them each year to 15 million Euro.

“I am pleased to announce the significant addition to the benefits of Holocaust survivors who are receiving direct stipends from Germany,” said the authority’s director, Ofra Ross, who called the addition “unprecedented.”

She further thanked the German representatives for their professional negotiations and goodwill in reaching this agreement.

The Holocaust Survivors’ Rights Authority has also implemented measures to improve the lives of survivors. The steps include grants of NIS 10,000 a year, exemptions on paying for medicine, increased nursing assistance, and employing volunteers to ease their loneliness.

There are some 200,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel, with around 50,000 living at or below the poverty line.

Aviva Silberman, founder of Aviv for Holocaust Survivors, which helps survivors navigate and get informed on their rights, welcomed the agreement.

“Finally they raised the compensation level for Holocaust survivors,” Silberman said, explaining that the compensation law (Bundesentschädigungsgesetz) hadn’t been updated since the 1960s.

“For years nothing was done about it,” Silverman said. “While here in Israel they kept on updating and raising the payments, the BEG was stagnant and stayed at the same amount. It is very meaningful.”

Ultimately, however, the new agreement will affect only around 7,000 survivors, partly because most survivors who signed up to the BEG until the ’60s are deceased by now, and, as Silberman explained, because survivors are categorized according to different criteria.

Survivors from North Africa, for example, who suffered from the Holocaust but were not directly swept up in it, do not receive compensation from Germany. The same goes for emigrants from the former Soviet Union and survivors who did not undergo forced labor.

“The payment structure for Holocaust survivors is complex,” Silberman said.

While Israel’s Finance Ministry has recognized many more survivors in recent years, they still do not receive appropriate compensation for the suffering, with some of them receiving as little as NIS 4,000 a year.

“It is the role of the Germans to take care of these populations as well,” Silberman added. “It’s not Israelis who are responsible for the Holocaust. It’s not you and me who have to pay survivors from our taxes.

“While the government does need to take care of these additional populations, it also needs to come from Germany,” she said, adding that “I think they should continue to negotiate with the Germans as successfully as they did now, so that they recognize these populations as well.”

What an appalling, disgraceful scam this entire Jewish racket is!

And notice nothing is ever good enough for these professional “Holocaust” extortionists and Jewish activists. No matter how much money, how much attention, how much political subservience non-Jews dish out to organized Jewry and their ridiculous, tyrannical demands, it is still not enough.

When will we learn? When will our political leadership finally stand up to to the egregious lies and outrageous demands of the organized Jewish community? When will we free our selves from weaponized Jewish historical and contemporary narratives designed to advance Jewish interests while delegitimizing our own righteous causes?
