My mother was born in Budapest and currently resides in a long term care nursing home. During the war, my mother was interned in the Budapest Ghetto for two months and worked as a cleaner.
My mother-in-law, who had already been through this process successfully, recommended that we contact the ‘International Center for Holocaust Reparations’ and gave us their phone number. My mother, who was always a strong and vigorous woman, is now not in the line of health, nor is she always aware of her surroundings. Therefore, I am the one who spoke with the staff, who guided me step by step. In fact, I didn’t even have to leave my house. The lawyers prepared the case meticulously and did all the work for us. After five months, our claim successfully brought us a very respectable amount.
I want to thank Zachi and his dedicated staff. I want to convey to anyone who lived in the Ghetto, not to neglect the issue, because it is money that the survivors and their families rightly deserve!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful advice, understanding and sensitivity
My name is A.G. and was born in the United States. However, my husband of blessed memory, who passed away five years ago, lived in Romania during World War II and was later expelled to Transnistria. He lived there for three and a half years, working in a soap factory. After I contacted the office of the Center for Holocaust Reparations, they called me back and guided me in completing all the forms. My daughter and I related all that we knew (we have no documentation). Yael took care of everything and I was compensated €19,500. In addition, I now receive a monthly pension of €130.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful advice, understanding and sensitivity.

I was born in May, 1927. During the war, I lived in the Debrecen Ghetto in Hungary for a month. From there, we were evicted to Auschwitz. My elder sister and I were the sole survivors of our entire family.
My friend recommended the ‘International Center for Holocaust Reparations‘ to me. I contacted them, received the relevant information and got help filling out all the forms. The firm has Jewish lawyers, warm, patient and kind-hearted. After several months, I succeeded in claiming 33,000€ as well as an additional monthly stipend of €198. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the money deposited in the bank!
Thank you to all the kind and dedicated staff, especially to Tami and Dana!
