France agrees to compensate Holocaust deportees

December 5, 2014, The Washington Post

Covington partner Stuart Eizenstat is mentioned in this article regarding an agreement between the U.S. and France that will provide $60 million for payment of survivors deported by the French state railway to concentration camps, their spouses and heirs of survivors who have died between 1948 and today, in the United States, Israel and other countries outside of France:

“This is another measure of justice for the harms of one of history’s darkest eras,” said the U.S. Special Adviser on Holocaust Issues, Stuart Eizenstat, who spent three years working with French officials on the agreement.

The money should break down to about $100,000 each for survivors and tens of thousands of dollars for spouses, said Eizenstat.
