IMPORTANT: Germany's "Ghetto Pension" for Terezin inmates #austria-czech

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>

Dear friends,

You may be interested in a letter I received >from the Claims Conference informing
that Terezin is now eligible for obtaining the Guetto Pension, and the deadline
for submitting new claims has been extended, so far "sine die".

If you were an inmate, and were 10 or less years old when taken to Terezin,
please get in touch with me. I would like to discuss what kind of "work" we did
in the guetto, besides trying to survive by "organizing" food and clothing.

On request, I will forward the full letter received >from Claims Conference to
those who haven't seen it.



Short abstract:

The following clarifications have been issued regarding certain areas of concern
raised by the Claims Conference. They include:

Theresienstadt is recognized both as a concentration camp and as a ghetto...
Applicants who have already received denials >from their Social Security office
(LVA) in Germany, based solely on the fact that Theresienstadt was not recognized
as a ghetto, should immediately contact the LVA again to request a review of
their claim.
