Germany’s New Pension Legislation For Nazi Ghettos

Germany’s Labour ministry wants to amend legislation to allow thousands of Jews who worked in World War II ghettos to draw a better pension.


Quoting figures from the Israeli government, the modified legislation would see around 13,000 survivors living in Israel receive an average of 15,000 Euros each in outstanding payments.


The Nazis established at least 1000 ghettos across occupied Europe, enclosing the local Jewish population and forcing them to live in miserable conditions.

Germany first began paying pensions for ghetto workers from 1997. Those who applied later than that year could only claim four years’ worth of back payment. The new legislation would overrule that and allow all to claim from 1997.
