A big smile on my face
thank you for your lovely messages and warm words. The whole thing has also put a big smile on my face. When I told my father he was soooo happy that a little bit of justice has been served. I have no words to express my gratitude to you for all the hard, determined work you have done…
One day when I’m finally in Israel I would love to thank you in person! Meanwhile look forward to hearing from you. Please stay in touch!

Dear Ms. Fuhrer,
Thank you for your good wishes for the New Year. Of course I too wish you the very best in the name of my entire family.
The unexpected news of the … Fund surprised me as much as it pleased me. I didn’t even know that you submitted claims for that one but believe me the money will come in handy…
Next year in Jerusalem!

Dear Ms Hersch, Ms Fuhrer
Thank you for the Center for Reparations efforts on my behalf. I received yesterday a letter informing my claim had been accepted.
Over 50 years ago I chose not to present a claim because I felt I would have been accepting money for the loss of my mother and I did not feel it would be morally acceptable. This time I feel this compensation is for what I went through. I think I can accept it.
I am at present working on a memoir of my experience as a child in graphic novel format. It is not complete and I may redo parts of it. But I would like to share it with you. I attached it in pdf format.
Thanks again. Toda Raba. and of course Leshana Tova

I want to thank you wholeheartedly for helping me to receive the reparation money. I so appreciate your friendliness, your encouragement, your willingness to help, to discuss. It is so rare in the official world.
Now thanks to you, my brother will be able to take care of his dental problems!
G-d bless you for being such a wonderful person.
All the best –

Dear wonderful people at Zachi Porath
Thank you for doing this wonderful work for us.
I am the child of Holocaust survivors. No matter how many years passed and how many family Simchas there were, the shadow of my parents’ suffering and the death and future of family members never left my parents’ memories.

Dear Michelle and Staff,

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!
