Survivors who worked in Nazi controlled ghettos might be entitled to receive a one-time payment of €2,000 (approximately £1,600) payment from a Humanitarian Fund in acknowledgment of "Ghetto Work without Force".
It is estimated that 50,000 Holocaust survivors worldwide will be eligible to apply.
Because the Ghetto Fund provides compensation for work voluntarily performed in a ghetto, survivors who received awards from slave labour compensation from the German Foundation: Remembrance, Responsibility and Future are also entitled to apply.
Applications should be made to the Bundesamt für zentrale Dienste und offene Vermögensfragen (BADV), 53221 Bonn, Germany. The telephone number is 0049 22899 7030 1324. Claim forms and further information about the Fund are also available at www.badv.bund.de
