Funds To Victims
New York (JTA) — The Austri-

pay the first 100 beneficiaries of
I a national fund for Jewish vic-
tims of the Nazis by Christmas.
The vow was reported by

niversary of the re-establish-

paid out tomorrow," not just the
first 100 applicants.
About 25,000 to 30,000 former
Jews of Austria are alive from

He added that the fund was
"too little, too late" because the
applicants are elderly, some of
them as old as 101.

fund," the Committee for Jew-
ish Claims on Austria "succeed-
ed in persuading the Austrian
government to provide a pay-

an Jew," according to Israel

tact their local Austrian Con-
