The Claims Conference is a global, non-profit organization committed to providing a small measure of justice to Holocaust Survivors. Since our founding in 1951, the Claims Conference has secured more than $70 billion from the German government in indemnification for Holocaust survivors. The history of the Claims Conference is one of innovation. Our founders identified an unmet need for justice and took action on behalf of Holocaust survivors. With no legal precedent, our founders pursued moral claims with a determination and relentless commitment that changed international law – and the world with it. It is our honor and our responsibility to preserve this legacy of innovation and lasting global impact.
Our headquarters are in New York while the 200+ social service agencies we fund are located in 47 countries across 6 continents. In 2020, the Claims Conference will distribute approximately $400 million in direct compensation and over $600 million in grants that provide support to over 130,000 survivors worldwide, including in-home nursing care, hunger relief, medical and dental programs. Our Research, Education, and Documentation (RED) funds contribute toward international efforts of film directors and museums to preserve the memory of the Holocaust, such as the film Son of Saul, an Oscar Award winner for Best Foreign Film. We continue to actively negotiate with the German government to expand funding criteria, such as the recent recognition of Algerian and Kindertransport survivors, enabling them to receive compensation for the first time in history.
At the Claims Conference, we make history as we honor history.
