70 Years of Holocaust Compensation and Restitution
On September 10, 1952, historical agreements were signed in Luxembourg between the government of Israel, the Conference on Jewish Materials Claims Against Germany, and the government of West Germany regarding the provision of reparations and compensations. To mark the event and within the framework of an international conference on the topic “70 Years of Holocaust Compensation and Restitution”, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany will provide five fellowships of $5,000 each to outstanding doctoral and post-doctoral scholars whose research deals with topics relating to the agreement and its various past and present implications, such as social, diplomatic, legal, and economic aspects. The conference will be organized jointly by the Goldstein-Goren Diaspora Research Center at Tel Aviv University, the Claims Conference, and Yad Vashem, in cooperation with a number of additional institutions, and will be held at Tel Aviv University on November 14–16, 2022.
