Holocaust Survivors of Luxembourg to Receive Compensation

Please be advised that Holocaust survivors may be eligible for compensation under a new agreement between the State of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Consistoire Israélite de Luxembourg, co-signed by the World Jewish Restitution Organization and Luxembourg Foundation for the Remembrance of the Shoah.

To be eligible an individual must have been persecuted as a Jew by the Nazi regime or their allies at any time from January 1933 to May 1945 AND either:

  • Currently resides in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, OR
  • Lived in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg at any time from January 1933 to May 1945.

Applications must be submitted by survivors, not heirs.

The agreement provides a total of 1,000,000 Euro, which will be distributed equally to approved applicants by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (“Claims Conference”). The exact amount to be distributed to each eligible individual can only be calculated when the total number of approved applicants has been determined.

Completed applications must be received at one of the following addresses by October 15, 2021:

PO Box 1215
New York, New York 10113
United States

Postfach 90 05 43
60445 Frankfurt am Main

Claim forms can be found at https://www.claimscon.org/our-work/compensation/background/luxembourg-fund/#application and can be submitted to one of the above addresses.

The Holocaust Claims Processing Office (HCPO) of the New York State Department of Financial services was established in 1997 to assist Holocaust victims worldwide, free of charge, with a myriad of restitution claims. The HCPO in no way disburses or handles funds intended for compensation.
