Israel is demanding reparations amounting to $1 billion on behalf of 30,000 Holocaust survivors who worked in the ghettos of Europe during World War II, Channel 10 reported Sunday. The initiative, which would include tens of thousands of elderly Israelis, is the work of Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, and is based on a law that was ratified by the German parliament seven years ago.
