Fifty Years of Holocaust Compensation

By Marilyn Henry

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2002

The close of the 20th century witnessed the culmination of agreements that led to the greatest amounts of compensation for victims of Nazi persecution since the original German compensation programs of the 1950s. As in the 1950s, the demand for compensation in the 1990s raised awkward moral and material issues. The Holocaust has been called a compilation of crimes, and the redress has been spotty. Fifty years of efforts to achieve justice for the victims of Nazi persecution have had limited success.
