Belgium to Pay $170m for Nazi-era Looting
The government of Belgium and several Belgian banks had agreed to pay US$170 million to compensate Jews whose property was looted by the Nazi occupation government between the invasion in 1940 and the liberation in 1944. Part of the money will be given to Holocaust survivors directly, while the remainder will be given to a Holocaust aid and remembrance foundation.
