Baker & McKenzie LLP to Assist Holocaust Survivors in German Ghetto Work Payment Program

Baker & McKenzie LLP has partnered with the United Jewish Appeal (“UJA”) and Jewish Information Services of Toronto (“JIST”) to host a free clinic to assist Holocaust survivors in filing claims under the German Ghetto Work Payment Program (“GWPP”) on September 21 at the Lipa Green Community Centre, by appointment only, from 10:30 to 3:30 p.m.

The Baker & McKenzie Toronto volunteer team is led by Brian Segal, Randy Schwartz and Jonathan Garbutt.

The Firm has also partnered with the Bet Tzedek legal clinic of Los Angeles, CA, which has put together a package of materials and training guides, both in DVD and on the Internet, to help train lawyers and other volunteers on how to fill out the GWPP forms effectively and how to deal with the most common issues related to the program.
