    Does anyone know any information about the forced labour compensation program. My Grandmother living in the Ukraine was taken by the Germans to work in a factory in Hamburg. I can’t seem to see if it’s still in operation. I know the German government has put aside money to compensate.

    All claimants under GFLCP had the right to appeal to a separate and independent Appeals Body within three months of receipt of the decision. GFLCP was completed in 2006 and payments to beneficiaries ended in 2007. Kindly note that the GFLCP has now been completed and that IOM can no longer accept claims, issue cheques or make new payments to beneficiaries.

    Thanks for your help. It’s a shame as I didn’t know about this.

    Some of these poor men and women at the end of the war, stayed in West-Germany,because they were afraid of returning home and possibly being accused of collaborating with the enemy.
    I know of a couple from Ukraine almost being send back home by the French Forces, but luckily helped by locals immigrating to the US.
