Nazi Camp Compensation Restored
An 85 year old woman has won a four year struggle with the Swedish health insurance authorities, involving forced labor and a Nazi concentration camp.
The woman had been forced to work in a ghetto during World War Two, and later was sent to a concentration camp, where she developed severe lung problems. After the war, she received around 11,000 dollars in compensation from Germany.
But the Swedish health insurance agency took more than half of that money, and reduced her pension. Now the Supreme Administrative Court has ruled that the money was compensation for damages, not pay for work done freely. She’s getting the rest of the money back, and her pension restored.
