A million Dollars wouldn't please me more
Sometimes about in 1999 I filed a claim under the Holocaust compensation. About a year later I received a confirmation, that the case was investigated and I was incorporated into the class of "deportation and forced labor for a company". (Apparently the labor camp did not qualify under the "concentration camp, ghetto, or other place of confinement recognized under the German Foundation Act".)
* Just now I received an Award of DEM 5 000 (EUR 2556.463) with a check as First installment for DEM 2 500 (EUR 1278.23) US$ 1565.45.
