News Digest:

Victims Receive
German Payment

New York/JTA — Starting this
week, 1,778 victims of Nazi medical
experiments will get one-time com-
pensation payments from Germany.
The Claims Conference identified
the victims who, under an agree-
ment with the German government,
will receive payments of about
$5,400 each.
Under Nazi rule, German doctors
and scientists conducted experi-
ments on Jews, including steriliza-
tion, amputation of limbs, organ
removal, infusion of infectious dis-
eases, immersion in ice water and
the infamous experiments on twins.
Most experiments tested how
much pain, torture or disease
human beings could endure before
dying, so the vast majority of exper-
iment subjects were killed.
"For survivors, it is a day of
muted triumph," said Roman Kent,
chairman of the American
Gathering of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors, at the news conference in
New York announcing the awards.

Few Jews Still
In Oscar Hunt

New York/JTA — Jewish talent and
themes scored only modestly in the
Oscar nominations.

However, there was recognition
Tuesday for the critically acclaimed
House of Sand and Fog by Vadim
Perelman, a 39-year-old native of
Kiev, Ukraine, in his first feature
film.
Although Perelman did not make
the best director category, the film
won three nominations.
The documentary feature category
includes two Jewish-related nomi-
nees: Capturing the Friedmans,
about a highly dysfunctional Jewish
family in New York, and My
Architect, chronicling the profes-
sional triumphs and unorthodox
personal lifestyle of American archi-
tect Louis Kahn, created by his son
Nathaniel Kahn and Susan R. Behr.
Among foreign-language films,
neither Israel's Nina's Tragedies nor
the Palestinian entry Divine
Intervention made the cut.

Israelis Recover
Hezbollah Victims

Jerusalem/JTA — An Israeli forensic
team set off for Germany to receive
the bodies of three soldiers abduct-
ed by Hezbollah.
The military experts will be
responsible for identifying the bod-
ies, due to arrive from Lebanon.
Israel then will release 436 security
prisoners, as demanded by
Hezbollah.
The Lebanese militia also will

return an Israeli businessman it kid-
napped in 2000.

Akiva Hosts
Open House

Southfield — Students and teachers
will participate in an open house at
Yeshivat Akiva 1-3 p.m. Sunday,

tion of the Jewish people to Israel
through literature, history and
