This autumn, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced that for the first time in its history, the Israeli government would need to pay monthly allowances from its own budget to Holocaust survivors and refugees….

German Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck said Thursday on a visit to Israel that his country would not renegotiate a Holocaust reparations deal signed with Israel.

Steinbrueck, speaking after meeting with representatives of Holocaust survivors’ organizations, said the deal signed in 1952 is ‘final’ and Germany has no plans to expand it in the future.
