Bank Leumi won’t pay Holocaust victims’ heirs

Bank Leumi, which holds most of the accounts of Jews who perished in the Holocaust, does not intend to pay the money it owes the survivors and victims’ heirs at this stage. The bank made this clear despite the publication of the parliamentary inquiry commission on this matter last week.

According to the commission’s report, the bank owes the survivors and victims’ heirs some NIS 35 million, which, together with the index-linkage and interest the commission set reach NIS 307 million.
