December 25, 2011 14:54

The board of directors of the Conference on Material Claims against Germany (Claims Conference) announced new changes on Sunday to the Hardship Fund that will enable thousands of Jewish Holocaust victims to receive one-time payments.

Following talks with the German government, the payments will now be made to certain Jews who fled some areas of the Soviet Union that were not occupied by the Nazis.

The changes will come into effect from January 1, 2012.
