The Holocaust Restitution Payment Fee Waiver Program was recently launched at the Great Hall in the State House in Massachusetts. It is the culmination of a project I initiated over six months ago for the benefit of survivors in and I hope that your readers will be able to participate and that others will disseminate this information. Over 60 Massachusetts state chartered banks have agreed to waive wire-transfer fees for Holocaust survivors in a voluntary program with incentives that are still open for additional banks who want to join. Details, press release, list of participating banks and other information can be found at:
