How much holocaust reparations has Germany paid to how many survivors?

Postby Aaron Richards » Sat Dec 02, 2017 3:06 pm

The reason I'm making this thread is because my knowledge on this topic is (as of yet) minimal, as I only concern myself with what happened during WW2 rather than politics later. But I'm getting different figures. To begin with, the Luxemburger Abkommen:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reparatio ... st_Germany

...states that between 1953 and 1966, Germany paid 3 billion Marks to Israel.

Which, using the average 4.15 Marks to a dollar exchange rate during the late 50s as a mean, see http://www.history.ucsb.edu/faculty/mar ... htm#tables

This translates to 722,891,566 US dollars, essentially less than 1 billion US dollars.

Now the question is what happened later?

Here are some newspaper sources stating Germany has paid 89 billion US dollars total in holocaust reparation money:

https://www.timesofisrael.com/germany-i ... survivors/
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/18/world ... ctims.html

Did I miss the relevant article on wiki where the total is presented? If so, kindly link me to it.

Deniers have been using overblown figures (as usual) speaking about trillions of dollars, or millions of survivors getting paid, all lies obviously, but I'd like some clarification, thanks.
"...we had the duty towards our Volk (the German people) to kill this Volk (the Jewish people) that wanted to kill us." - Himmler in his 1943 Posen speech reminding any future holocaust denier how absurd their beliefs really are.

. . . we need Mr Muehlenkamp! . . .
. . . I mean Negative Capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason—Coleridge, for instance, would let go by a fine isolated verisimilitude caught from the Penetralium of mystery, from being incapable of remaining content with half-knowledge. - John Keats, 1817

There’s a link in there to AHF where Roberto discusses this.
