    Help for families of captives in World War 2

    Hello,

    I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but oh well: I red about some kind of program in germany(?) which funds families of captive soldiers in world war 2. I'd like to get more information about this program if it's true. Anyone else heared about it? Any help is really appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    George

    Unfortunately that's all I know. Afaik germany sends some amount (several thousand EUR) to families whose family members were captives in world war 2. I am sure there would be a website where all this information can be found.

    I don't know of such a progamme for the support of former prsioners of war.
    There is (was?) a programme started about 2 or 3 years ago to support persons who were brougt to Germany during WWII as forced labourers. But as far as I know this programme has been closed now.
    The total amount available was transferred to the countries were persons eligible for benefits still live (mainly countries in eastern Europe like Poland, Russia, the Baltic states, etc.), and were to be distributed by the administrations of these states.
    I think that only the forced labourers peronally could get money but not their families. The amount paid to each person was in the region you mentioned (several thousand EUR), dependung on personal conditions like the length of time a person was kept in Germany.
