With an apology, Germany returns reparations to Holocaust survivor’s kin

A German official has apologized to the daughter of a Holocaust survivor for demanding she return 72.55 euros that the government had mistakenly paid out to her deceased mother after she died in January.

And Germany will return the money — about $80 — to the daughter, who had written a check for the amount after receiving a callously worded letter explaining that her mother, having died, had no right to it.
