The Struggles of Recovering Assets for Holocaust Survivors
Six million Jews were murdered at the hands of the Nazis during the Holocaust, and millions more suffered unspeakable atrocities committed against them and their loved ones. All of their properties and belongings were stolen as the Nazis deported them to ghettos and concentration camps where most of them died of starvation, exhaustion, torture, or in gas chambers. The toll the Holocaust has taken on survivors is unimaginable and it is unforgivable, but we cannot forget that it takes a tremendous toll on the second generation as well. Today there are less than 1/2 million survivors of humanity's darkest period, with nearly half of all survivors worldwide living at or below the poverty level, and it is painful to see those who have suffered so greatly continue to struggle day in and day out as if they had not suffered enough. And with the average age of Holocaust survivors estimated at 82, time is truly running out for us to bring them some sort of justice, some kind of closure, so that they can live out the rest of their lives in dignity and comfort. These survivors and their families need to be made whole, and this is why it is vital for Germany and other nations to fulfill their obligations and for insurance companies that have been running out the clock in a deliberate attempt to avoid paying out rightful claims to be held accountable and to finally pay for what they owe these survivors, for what they owe these survivors.
