New Holocaust Pensions

CK - Washington.   Workers forced by Nazis and occupying German forces into jobs outside of Germany, such as military postal work in Poland and Belarus, can qualify for German pension claims, the top German court for employment matters ruled on June 1, 2009. A Deutsche Welle report contains detailed information which may assist eligible persons now residing outside of the regions where the Nazis operated.



Broadcasters Cut Net Fare

CK - Washington.   German public TV broadcasters begin to delete Internet material a few days after publishing it. Sports shows will disappear after 24 hours. WDR implements its new policy on June 1, 2009 and will immediately delete its database of legal opinions related to its legal advisory program, ARD Ratgeber Recht, while ZDF will phase in its policy through the end of 2009. The broadcasters argue that the state broadcasting compact, Rundfundstaatsvertrag, requires such cuts.
