Germany agrees Holocaust survivors can resubmit claims
If anyone needs a clue as to what may have caused 'the holocaust' [the extent of which still remains a mystery] one needs to pay attentoin to the never ending insistent, persistent drive to extort money from the Germans by Ashkenazi Jewry. It is a different kind of the human species, one that seems to have the attraction to money and material acquisition embedded in its blood!

Thousands of Holocaust survivors who have never received compensation from Germany will now be permitted to resubmit claims, the Holocaust Claims Conference announced Thursday.
13,000 Holocaust survivors can begin applying for a one-time payment of 2,556 euros (NIS 14,100) from Friday, following discussions between the Claims Conference and the German government.
The announcement represents an aboutface on the previous stance of the two bodies, which had for many years said those who missed out on compensation or failed to hand in applications on time had no right to resubmit their claims.
The German government will transfer 33 million euros to the Claims Conference to be made available to the survivors, around 7,500 of whom live in Israel.
The Claims Conference was founded in 1951 at the instigation of the Israeli government, which wanted an organization to represent world Jewry in negotiations with Germany over Holocaust reparations.
