      Families of Lithuanian Holocaust Victims to Receive Compensation

      Lithuanian Jews who survived the Nazi Holocaust and Soviet terror during World War II will receive symbolic compensation from the Baltic state next year, a Jewish group leader said Wednesday. 

      Andrew Baker of the American Jewish Committee told journalists in Vilnius that three million litas (870,000 euros, $1.l4 million) "will be used as a symbolic payment to individual Lithuanian Jewish survivors of totalitarian regimes."
