After the conclusion of World War II did the Germans pay reparations of some sort to the Jews?

A lot of people would probably assume that, yes, some sort of redress did occur, but that whatever it was, most likely was paid out in one, two, three, or perhaps four lump sum payments, and that the matter was over, settled, and done with, oh, say maybe five years after the war, or ten at most. Few people—or at any rate few who aren’t Jewish, or who don’t make a regular habit of reading the Jewish press—would guess that today, fully 67 years after the war, Germany continues to pay reparations to Jews, or that the benefits doled out keep going up every year, rather than down. But this is indeed the case.

In July of 2012 observances were held marking the 60th anniversary of the Luxembourg Agreement. The event took place in Washington D.C., with ceremonies held at the Israeli Embassy, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Hart Senate Office Building. So what, you may ask, is the Luxembourg Agreement?

Forcing the Germans to Pay Up

Formally known as the Reparations Agreement between Israel and West Germany, Luxembourg is an agreement signed on September 10, 1952 following lengthy negotiations between an ad hoc committee of Jews representing various Jewish organizations, including the World Jewish Congress; officials from the new state of Israel; and representatives of the West German government, including the country’s then-chancellor Konrad Adenauer. The upshot of the accord was that West Germany was to make restitution, partly in the form of large payments to Israel, on behalf of Jews who had suffered during the Nazi era. The agreement is discussed at some length in an article by Mark Weber, who tells us the West Germans basically had little choice in the matter, and who also supplies us with a rather illuminating quote from Adenauer’s memoirs:

It was clear to me that, if the negotiations with the Jews failed, the negotiations at the London Debt Conference [which were going on at the same time] would also run aground, because Jewish banking circles would exert an influence upon the course of the London Debt Conference which should not be under-estimated. On the other hand it was self-evident that a failure of the London Debt Conference would bring about a failure of the negotiations with the Jews. If the German economy was to achieve a good credit standing and become strong again, the London Conference would have to be ended successfully. Only then would our economy develop in a way that would make the payments to Israel and the Jewish organizations possible. See 5.

More on the London Debt Conference can be found in a summary here, but basically it was an agreement on how German debts, mainly from the period between the two world wars, would be settled with a number of creditor nations, including the US, Britain, and France. Weber goes on to relate (emphases added):

Zionist leader Nahum Goldmann, President of the World Jewish Congress and chairman of the Claims Conference, warned of a worldwide campaign against Germany if the Bonn officials did not meet the Zionist demands: “The non-violent reaction of the whole world, supported by wide circles of non-Jews, who have deep sympathy with the martyrdom of the Jewish people during the Nazi period, would be irresistible and completely justified.” See 6. The London Jewish Observer was more blunt: “The whole material weight of world Jewry will be mobilized for an economic war against Germany, if Bonn’s offer of reparations remains unsatisfactory.” See 7.

Goldman and the other Jews who participated in the negotiations collectively came to be known as The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, or simply the Claims Conference (CC). As a result of the agreement, the CC was installed, not only as the representative of world Jewry, but also essentially almost as an arbiter, procuring payments from West Germany on the basis of claims filed by individual Holocaust survivors. And here it should be strongly emphasized that German funds have gone out not just to the Jewish state, but also to Jewish individuals as well. According to one source, more than $60 billion has been paid out in the past 60 years to some 500,000 purported Holocaust survivors living in 87 different countries.

The claims process works like this: the money is handed over by Germany to the CC, which in turn will allocate it into different funds that it oversees, with each fund earmarked for a specific purpose. There is, for instance, an Article 2 Fund, which provides lifetime pensions for anyone held in a concentration camp, ghetto, or who worked on a forced labor battalion. Also eligible for an Article 2 pension would be those who were only “forced to go into hiding,” as Wikipedia puts it. And then we have a Hardship Fund, which provides one-time payments for those Jews who emigrated to the West from Soviet-bloc countries, and a Holocaust Victims Compensation Fund, providing one-time payments to emigrants from the former Soviet Union itself. The compensation amounts have increased over the years. Currently the Article 2 pensions are set at 300 euros a month, while payments from the Hardship Fund are 2,556 euros each, and the Holocaust Victims Compensation Fund 1,900 euros each.

In addition there is also a Central and Eastern European Fund, which, like Article 2, allocates monthly pensions, only these specifically are provided for Jewish survivors who, rather than emigrating to the West, remained in Eastern Europe or the former Soviet Union. These pensions are currently set at 260 euros per month, however, as of Jan. 1, 2013, they will increase to 300 euros a month, making them equal to the Article 2 pensions.

Different funds have different eligibility requirements. For instance, a person may qualify for the Hardship Fund if he/she underwent i) deprivation of liberty; ii) flight from the Nazi regime; iii) “restriction of liberty” as defined under BEG, a German restitution law passed in the 1950s; iv) restriction of movement such as having to observe a curfew, as well as compulsory registration with limitation of residence, or wearing the star of David; or if they v) resided in Leningrad at some time between September 1941 and January 1944, or fled from there during the same period. According to the Claims Conference website, the CC has approved 355,146 claimants and paid out $971 million under the Hardship Fund. Figures are also available for certain of the other funds: under the Article 2 fund, for instance, 85,608 applicants have been approved with a total payout of $3.3 billion; and for the Central and Eastern European Fund—24,307 applicants and $479 million . No figures seem to be available for the Holocaust Victim Compensation Fund, or for a new fund, known as the Orphans Fund, set up as of January 1 this year, The latter offers a one-time payment of 1,900 euros to those born 1928 or later who “were orphaned due to Nazi persecution” with both parents having been killed.

Read the entire, very well researched and extremely enlightening article at the Leftwing-Christian blog.

I must also recommend the interview that John Friend did with Richard on The Realist Report, especially the second hour, which gets in to this subject (just before the break between hours, Richard reads one of his poems which is incredibly powerful). The rest of the article (and interview) also highlights the vast thievery of money taken from the reparations to fuel living the high life of virtually every personality that has their Jewish fingers in the pie.

The amount of money given in “reparations” is stifling and from what they continue to say and do, it will be never-ending (generations to come). You want to know how Israel was built and has survived, just understand that everything they have “accomplished” has come at the expense of Germans, other Europeans and obviously American tax-payers who are hoodwinked into supporting our own demise.

All over lies.

    • The raping of the German Republic got its start following WWI, until Hitler put a stop to that financial holocaust, is now proceeding again.

      Only this time, Germans don’t have the wherewithal to push back, since the cream of the crop Germans were brutally murdered by the millions following the end of WWII.

        • Unprovoked aggressive war is the paramount war crime. Israel has committed a blatent war crime…againIf Obama and the DOD assisted or signed off…they stand guilty as well….again. I believe this is also a declaration of war under international law.. Syria has an absolute right to respond. I’m sure the Israeli/U.S. excuse will be “self-defense”. Or “Weapons headed for Hezbollah”. If that is the official excuse then common sense says Syria has the absolute right of “self defense” to hit every weapons stockpile, training camp or command center established for the hilariously misnamed “Free” Syrian Army in Jordan, Turkey. Iraq or Israel. Iran has a mutual defense treaty with Syria. This could spiral out of control very quickly. I pray Assad shows maturity and restraint to expose the Israelis before the whole world as the cowardly, vicious little bastards they are. If it is confirmed that nukes were used…no power on earth will protect Israel from the well deserved retribution that will come. I’d watch what Russia does, not what they say.

    Robert Faurisson observes, – http://www.palestine-encyclopedia.com/EPP/TheAuthor.htm

    “Elie Wiesel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986. He is generally accepted as a witness to the Jewish ‘Holocaust,’ and, more specifically, as a witness to the legendary Nazi extermination gas chambers….”

    http://www.public-action.com/SkyWriter/WacoMuseum/

    But in what respect is Elie Wiesel a witness to the alleged gas chambers? By what right does he ask us to believe in that means of extermination? In an autobiographical book that supposedly describes his experiences at Auschwitz and Buchenwald, he nowhere mentions the gas chambers. He does indeed say that the Germans executed Jews, but…by fire; by throwing them alive into flaming ditches, before the very eyes of the deportees! No less than that! Here Wiesel the false witness had some bad luck.

    http://www.israelect.com/reference/WillieMartin/HOLOHOAX.htm

    Forced to choose from among several Allied war propaganda lies, he chose to defend the fire lie instead of the boiling water, gassing, or electrocution lies. In 1956, when he published his testimony in Yiddish, the fire lie was still alive in certain circles. This lie is the origin of the term Holocaust. Today there is no longer a single historian who believes that Jews were burned alive. The myths of the boiling water and of electrocution have also disappeared. Only the gas remains…..like methane…http://www.israelnationalnews.com

    * The gassing lie was spread by the Americans.

    * The lie that Jews were killed by boiling water or steam (specifically at Treblinka) was spread by the Poles.

    http://www.ynetnews.com/home/0,7340,L-3082,00.html

    * The electrocution lie was spread by the Soviets.

    Yes, these are all Holocaust lies….in fact the “Jewish” Narrative is a monumental LIE…and is a De Facto violation of the commandment “Thou shlat NOT bear false witness”…it is impossible to be a “Jew” without Hating Jesus and “BEARING FALSE WITNESS”….that is what makes a stool sculpture deity cult member a “JEW”.

  2. Funny, how they keep crawling out of the wood works. There seems to be no end to the cock roaches sucking the blood of the Germans. Must be something sinister about the Teutones.

    To add insult to injury, Art. 231 of the ‘peace’ treaty of Versailles Germany and Austria-Hungary were deemed responsible for all ‘loss and damage’ suffered by the Allies during WWI in the amount of 226 billion Reichsmark. Apparently, in 1952 Germany had paid some 1.5 billion in war reparations. The debt was suspended in 1953 pending unification. Now comes the bummer, in 1990 the old debts went into effect again with 20 years for payment.

    As of 2009, they were still £50 Mio in debt for the 1st world war. That begs the question, where did all that money go?
