Belgium: Deadline Extended on New Fund
The Claims Conference announces that, following its request, the Jewish Foundation of Belgium (Fondation du Judaisme de Belgique) has extended the deadline to file for compensation through its upcoming compensation fund.

The new deadline is June 30, 2006.

The Jewish Foundation of Belgium announced earlier this year its 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.

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.
