Passed House amended (06/07/2016)

Urges the working group established by the Federal Republic of Germany and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany to recognize the imperative to fund immediately and fully the medical, mental health, and long-term care needs of surviving Holocaust victims, with full transparency and accountability, to ensure all funds for Holocaust victims from the Federal Republic of Germany are administered efficiently, fairly, and without delay.

Urges the Federal Republic of Germany also to continue to reaffirm its commitment to fulfill its moral responsibility to Holocaust victims by:

  • ensuring that each Holocaust victim receives all of the prescribed medical care, home care, mental health care, and other vital services necessary to live in dignity; and
  • providing, without delay, additional financial resources to address the unique needs of Holocaust victims.
