BERLIN: The German government plans to pay compensation to Holocaust survivors who worked in Jewish ghettos set up by the Nazis, a magazine reported on Saturday. Weekly magazine Der Spiegel said the government was making a second attempt to pay damages to surviving workers from the ghettos, who unlike slave labourers compensated since 2000, generally earned a small-albeit often negligible-wage. In 2002, the German parliament passed a law to grant these survivors a small pension, but the drive proved unsuccessful due to bureaucratic complications in processing the claims. In view of this, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has now instructed the German finance ministry to settle the claims in anon-bureaucratic manner, and set up a fund based on the model used for the slave labour victims, the magazine said.
