Swiss Memorial Fund

ZURICH, Switzerland () -- Control over a Swiss memorial fund for needy Holocaust victims and their heirs will remain in Switzerland and not move to Israel, as a prominent Jew had proposed, officials said Sunday.


Burg told reporters in Basle he had come to an agreement with Bloch and that funds allotted to Jewish recipients would go primarily to Holocaust victims in the former Soviet Union who were never compensated for their suffering during World War II.
