Germany to extend pensions for Jewish workers of Nazi ghettos
Proposal worth an average of $20,400 to each of the 130,000 former ghetto workers living in Israel.
Germany's Labor Ministry is to bring in new legislation extending the pension rights of thousands of Jews forced to work in Nazi-era ghettos, Der Spiegel magazine reported on Sunday.
Der Spiegel said the ministry had presented the proposal to an Israeli delegation visiting Berlin last week, and it would be worth an average of 15,000 euros ($20,400) extra to each of the 130,000 former ghetto workers living in Israel.
Germany first began paying pensions for ghetto workers from 1997. Those who applied later than that year could only claim four years' worth of back payment. The new legislation would overrule that, and allow all to claim from 1997, Der Spiegel said.
A spokesman for the Labor Ministry declined to comment on the report but said the new government which took office in December 2013 had pledged to find a solution to the issue as quickly as possible.
"A lot of progress has been made already," he added.
