  4. The major organizations that take the money for themselves without giving it to the survivors should be punished. Give the money directly to the people who need it.

  6. I often receive phone calls from survivors and their children asking for financial help to help pay for home care and nursing homes. The holocaust claims conference is not helping them and their is a lot of red tape to get any help. What are they waiting for.? Perhaps for the holocaust survivors to die out.

  9. I agree that the money needs to go to the survivors, but some of them are unable to manage money or make any financial decision on their own. Most are at the age when they need constant assistance or at least someone with them, they are very frail now from age as well as deprivation. Every effort should be made to keep them inn their own homes with loving attendants/caregivers.

  10. The US should put them in reservations or protective custody,
    if native Indians and criminals are eligible might as well
    since not many are left…
