  • A Commitment to Caring for Holocaust Victims Worldwide

    The Claims Conference is the only organization in the world specifically dedicated to aiding elderly Holocaust victims in 47 countries, through allocations to a network of local partner organizations.

    Funds for vital services, such as homecare, food and medical care, come primarily as a result of negotiations with the German government and proceeds from the sales of recovered Jewish properties in the former East Germany, but also from a number of other government, corporate and foundation sources.
