Pursuing Rights of Holocaust Survivors
- Are you a Holocaust survivor who was interned in a Ghetto?
- Are you a child of a Holocaust survivor who was interned in a Ghetto?
You may be entitled to a large sum of money!
It goes on:
Even if you are already receiving compensation from the Claims Conference or from the German authorities, including the German Pension Insurance you may be eligible to receive additional payments.
The pension is paid even to those who were interned for a short period of time in a Ghetto (including Ghettos in Poland, Romania (New!), Czernowitz, Shanghai, Sofia, Thessaloniki, Transnistria, Amsterdam, Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus and many more). The possibilities are for a one-time retroactive compensation, as well as a monthly payment from the German Social Security.
Who is entitled to compensation?
Any individual who was interned in a Ghetto, even for a short while, may be entitled to a monthly payment as well as a one-time retroactive payment – in some instances dated back to the year 1997.
A widow(er) of a Holocaust survivor is also eligible for a pension from Germany that would have been paid to the deceased spouse, including cases in which the spouse has been deceased for many years.
This claim can be filed even if you are already receiving a monthly reparation payment from the Claims Conference or directly from Germany (BEG, German Pension Insurance or BADV).
If you are an heir of a ghetto survivor, and the survivor or their spouse was alive on June 27th, 2002, you may be entitled to a one-time payment.
The International Center for Reparations generously only charges if it succeeds in securing Holocaust payments for its first- or second-generation Holocaust survivor clients:
How much do you charge?
We do not charge a fee for our services. After successfully filing the claim, the German Social Security will transfer the money directly into your bank account.
After you have received the restitution payment, we will charge a fee of 15% of the retroactive sum.
You will not be charged any fee if your claim was rejected.
Here is more on this outfit, which uses a US phone number:
The International Center for Holocaust Reparations is under the umbrella of Zachi Porath Ltd. (Tax Identification Number 515060218, duly organized and existing under the laws of the State of Israel, with its registered offices at 9 Hartom street, 9777509 Jerusalem, Israel).
We have been aiding Holocaust survivors all over the world in exercising their rights and have successfully helped many survivors attain their rightful money.
We employ experienced lawyers and certified German pension experts, supported by a team of dedicated and sensitive assistants who do their utmost to achieve the highest possible remuneration for the survivor (or his heirs).
I wonder how much the "certified German pension experts" who work with them, assuming they are non-Jews, are motivated by payment themselves and how much by ideology?
Note well! -- The hook here is the second-generation survivor. angle, used to hook in viewers of this Google Ad.
It is a concept many have mocked; see, e.g.:
- "'First Generation Holocaust Survivors'????? What on earth"
A hypothetical full normalization of the concept of the "Second Generation Holocaust Survivor" then opens up the concept of "Third Generation Holocaust Survivors," which includes many, many millions now rather young with decades of expected life remaining. Here are two:
- "Third-Generation Holocaust Survivor Jared Kushner"
- "Actress Scarlett Johansson: Third Generation Holocaust Victim"
Will there be more of this in the 2020s than there was in the 2000s/2010s? It's a good bet. This is the way the Holocaust civic cult overcomes the oft-cited problem of running out of Survivors.
I still can't imagine, though, that they'll proceed logically along the same line and begin prosecutions of Second-Generation Nazis, or even Third-Generation Nazis. The concept of collective inherited guilt is, of course, an important baseline part of our (Western) culture(s) and politics, now. It is firmly in place. We need not have any cases of CNN announcing one morning the shocking pre-dawn arrest of any John Demjanjuk III, arrested for Holocaust crimes of the grandfather. But Second- and Third-Generation Holocaust Survivors seems inevitable.
