Jews who lived in Algeria during the Vichy regime will receive compensation, said the Claims Conference. Algerian Jews were “one of the last” groups to be recognized by Germany, the organization’s vice president said. Under the Vichy regime, Jews were targeted across all of France’s territories
The Claims Conference Hardship Fund on Monday announced that a new group of Jewish Holocaust survivors will be eligible for compensation from the Germany government. The group consists of Jews who lived in Algeria between July 1940 and November 1942. Those eligible for compensation will receive a one-time payment of €2,556 ($3,180), which the German government will begin paying out in July.
