Holocaust survivors awarded $300m in insurance claims case





WASHINGTON -- More than $300 million in previously unpaid insurance claims were awarded to 48,000 Holocaust survivors for harm they suffered during World War II, an international commission said Tuesday. The International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims concluded its claims and appeals process after a worldwide outreach campaign began in 1998 to ensure that insurance companies fulfilled their obligations. Its review was able to match those survivors submitting claims with more than 70 European insurance companies and businesses.
