U.S. – France Agreement on Compensation for Certain Victims of Holocaust-Related Deportation
On November 2, 2015, the U.S. Department of State began accepting claims applications for consideration under the U.S.-France Agreement on Compensation for Certain Victims of Holocaust-Related Deportation from France Who Are Not Covered by French Programs.
The Department of State recently announced that it is establishing a second-round filing period for this compensation program to allow claimants who missed the original deadline to have an opportunity to submit a claim.
The second-round filing period opened on September 15, 2016 and will close on January 20, 2017. Program requirements will remain the same, and payments for eligible second-round claims will be made out of the funds remaining after all eligible first-round claims have been paid.
