Jewish Foundation of Belgium
The Jewish Foundation of Belgium (Fondation du Judaïsme de Belgique) has announced the intention to establish a compensation fund for certain Jewish survivors of the Shoah in Belgium who have received no compensation or less than 3000 Euro to date under Belgian or German property restitution programs.

The fund would be endowed with certain monies from the non-distributed assets remaining in the Belgian Indemnification Commission (also known as the Commission Buysse) when all claims filed through the Commission have been paid out.

The older survivors will have priority. Certain prior payments may be deducted from the eventual payment, as applicable.

Any person who survived in Belgium, regardless of present or past nationality or duration of stay in Belgium during the war, may be able to receive compensation from the foundation if eligible and should contact the fund as soon as possible.

Please Note: The deadline to file a request for compensation through the foundation is March 31, 2006.
