The German government will increase funds given to Holocaust survivors by 15 percent. The new deal reached Tuesday between Germany and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, known as the Claims Conference, means that the German government's contribution to homecare funding for Holocaust survivors around the world will rise from $156 million in 2011 to about $180 million in 2012. The allocations will rise to nearly $200 million by 2014.
