On January 27, 2021, International Holocaust Remembrance Day, an agreement was signed between the State of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Consistoire Israélite de Luxembourg, co-signed by the World Jewish Restitution Organization and Luxembourg Foundation for the Remembrance of the Shoah. In the agreement, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg committed to pay a one-time payment to survivors of the Shoah who are living in or were persecuted in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The agreement provides a total amount of EUR 1,000,000, to be distributed equally to approved applicants. The agreement designated the Claims Conference as the entity responsible for administering the fund and distributing the funds for the eligible survivors.
The exact amount to be distributed to each individual can only be calculated when the total number of approved applicants has been determined.
These funds have been provided by Luxembourg to the Claims Conference pursuant to an agreement with World Jewish Restitution Organization and the Luxembourg Jewish community.
