Shoah Class Action Suit: Children of Holocaust Survivors to Sue Germany - International - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News

A class action suit is to be filed in Israel against the German government on behalf of the children of Holocaust survivors who are in urgent need of psychological treatment.

 Over 1 million Jews were killed at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp during the Holocaust. Now children of Holocaust survivors are filing a class action suit against the German government. A class action suit is to be filed in Israel against the German government on behalf of the children of Holocaust survivors.

The lawsuit, which will be filed in Tel Aviv on Sunday, will demand that the German government pay for the psychological treatment of children of Holocaust survivors living in Israel (more...).

The suit is being filed by the Fisher Fund, an Israeli charity that helps Holocaust survivors, and will represent tens of thousands of Holocaust victims' children. The fund expects the number registered for the class action suit to soon reach 30,000 people, due to enormous media interest in Israel.
