The Kindertransport Fund will open January 1, 2019 and begin processing eligible applications. Although some survivors were provided a small payment in the 1950s, prior payments under compensation programs (other than the Child Survivor Fund) will not bar claimants from receiving this new benefit.
The fund will issue one-time payments of €2,500.
This fund is open to Jewish Nazi Victims who met the following criteria at the time of transport:
Applications must be submitted by survivors, not heirs. However, if an eligible survivor passes away after an application form is received and registered by the Claims Conference, the surviving spouse is entitled to payment. If there is no surviving spouse, the child(ren) of the eligible child survivor is entitled to the payment.
