About 1,000-2,000 Jews who had suffered from the occupation regime in Lithuania will receive symbolic payments, Faina Kukliansky, chairperson of the Vilnius-based Foundation For Good- Will Compensations, said in Vilnius on Friday.

Jews who suffered from the Nazi regime should receive the first payments by the end of this year, she said, after meeting with Gunter Saathoff, director of the Germany Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future organization paying compensations to victims of the Nazis.
