Situation of Concentration Camps Survivors

When the few survivors of the Holocaust returned, they had, in most cases, lost their families and belongings. Yet they were regularly accused of lying about their internment in a concentration camp and thus were refused any aid by the post-war authorities, which continued to work on the basis of the same assumptions and prejudices they had the years before. In Germany and Austria, restitution payments were issued later-it took until the mid-1990s for them to receive proper offers.
