Hardship Fund

The AJR has received the following announcement from the Claims Conference. We understand that Holocaust survivors and refugees from Austria are included in this definition of 'Western persecutees':

'Western persecutees' - Nazi victims who were citizens of certain western [west European] countries at the time of persecution and when post-war agreements were reached between that country and Germany - are not currently receiving payments from the Hardship Fund. The German government is not making funding available at present for such payments. Applications from such western persecutees are not therefore being processed at this time. Announcements in the future regarding new developments will be posted on our website at www.claimscon.org
