Support for Nazi Victims

Needy Nazi victims in Northern Israel, subject to a month of rocket attacks during Israel’s war with Hezbollah in 2006, received financial and moral support from the Claims Conference during and after this very difficult time.

The Claims Conference has:

  • Issued emergency payments to Nazi victims in the North who are in need
  • Allocated funds for protected rooms in Amigour sheltered housing projects
  • Held information sessions to aid Nazi victims in applying for Holocaust-related compensation and social welfare benefits.
  • Funded special performances of Yiddishpiel during the war for Nazi victims who remained in the North

The Claims Conference is continuing to work on additional projects to assist victims of Nazism in Northern Israel, such as preparing to assist hospitals in border areas.
