Dozens of Connecticut Holocaust survivors are applying for reparations
for work performed in Jewish ghettos established by the Nazis in World
The one-time payment of $3000 may not repair the damage done by the Holocaust, but it is seen by some as a symbolic goodwill gesture by the German government.
Today on Where We Live, we'll learn some of the history of the ghettos where thousands of Jews worked, sometimes as a brief stopover before moving to the concentration camps.
We'll talk to those in the legal community working to get reparations payments under this program and the status of reparations with Germany.
And, we'll hear from local Holocaust survivors, who spoke to WNPR's Diane Orson.
Are you, or is someone in your family applying for Holocaust reparations? Can a payment of $3000 really repay someone for a shattered life?
Youn can see pictures of Holocaust survivors applying for reparations on WNPR's Flickr Site.
