In addition to those who spent time in concentration camps, those eligible for assistance include individuals who were evacuated from their homes and displaced during the War years. Jewish persons displaced in the former Soviet Union because of war-related events are also included in this eligible population.
Eligibility is based on criteria established by the Claims Conference and Jewish Community Services.
Individuals persecuted as a Jew by the Nazis or their allies in the form of living in hiding or under false identity, living in a ghetto or a
camp, performing forced labor, forced to wear a yellow star, or to flee their home to escape Nazi persecution may be eligible for
individual compensation through various reparation programs.
Staff assist survivors in applying for individual compensation programs and in completing annual Life Certificates.
