Nazi victims' fund pays out £21m

A British scheme to return money belonging to victims of the Nazis has paid out more than £21m, or 10 times its budget, BBC News has learned.

The Enemy Property Claims Assessment panel (Epcap) was set up to help people who lived in enemy countries and whose British bank accounts were frozen.

accounts frozen?

What happened to the accounts of those that never made it out?
Where and how was the money in these accounts used?

Surely, any innocent party living in a war zone should not have their assets confiscated with no hope of return. In reality it should first be shown that they are trading with the enemy.


After the war, assets confiscated from affected countries were shared out among British people whose own assets had been confiscated by the enemy countries.

And just who were these Britishers who had a hand out? how can this be justified?


compensate the families of Holocaust victims

Rather, those that survived and had proof that they had accounts/property in the UK that was not involved in trading with the enemy.


reparations paid by UK taxpayers

This should be paid by those that froze/confiscated assets and not the tax payer.
The tax payer did not go to war.
