Human Resources Coordinator

The Claims Conference is a global, non-profit organization committed to providing a small measure of justice to Holocaust Survivors.  Our headquarters are in New York while the 200+ social service agencies we fund are located in 47 countries across 6 continents. In 2019, the Claims Conference will distribute approximately $350 million in direct compensation and nearly $550 million in grants that provide support to over 130,000 Survivors worldwide. Our Research, Education and Documentation grants fund museums and films, such as recent Oscar Award Winner (Best Foreign Film) Son of Saul, that provide meaningful and accessible methods of engagement with generations who may not be able to meet survivors first-hand. We continue to actively negotiate with the German government to expand funding criteria, such as the recent recognition of Algerian Survivors, enabling them to receive compensation for their experiences for the first time in history. At the Claims Conference, we honor history while making history.
