'Survivors' compensation continues, again...

Postby borjastick » 1 month 16 hours ago (Sun Aug 18, 2019 6:09 am)

Presumably in 2019 or any time in the past twenty years or so, if you went through the concentration camp system, or claimed privations and restrictions upon jews in WW2 and are still alive it is safe to say the holocaust didn't have any meaningful lasting effect.

So I wonder just why these 'survivors' are still asking for and getting continued payments from Germany.

If a person is convicted of a heinous crime and sent to prison for a few years before being released they may well qualify for compensation which would account for their incarceration, the injustice of it all, loss of earnings and the social and familial pain and reputational damage etc. That would be calculated and paid and then no more. So why should jews be paid forever and a day for something that if true, wasn't pleasant but didn't harm them more than many other people during the war years?

Here we see the situation again -

Germany to make additional payments to Holocaust survivors

Hundreds of extra euros per month will go to about 5,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel. More than 200,000 Holocaust survivors are still living in the country.


Did US Japanese citizens get any compo for their incarceration during the war?

Is there any reason why israel cannot look after jews around the world from all the billions it gets every year?

Looks like Poland is trying to get in on this
