Dutch Euro Parliamentarian Pledges to Fight ‘Gross Injustice’ Faced by Holocaust Survivor Locked in Pension Battle With German Government

A Dutch member of the European Parliament has demanded that the German government correct a “gross injustice” in the case of the Holocaust survivor whose struggle over several decades to secure a decent pension from the German government was reported on by The Algemeiner last year.

82-year-old Albert de Leeuw was receiving “peanuts,” while former members of the Nazi SS in various European countries continued to get generous pensions, European Parliament member Paul Tang said on Dutch television.

De Leeuw’s harrowing experiences as a Jewish child under Nazi occupation and subsequent legal battles with the German government were the subject of an Algemeiner feature last September.

Speaking to the news show Een Vandaag last week, Tang advocated “political and social pressure on Berlin” to stop the payment of pensions to war criminals and, at the same time, speedily review cases, like de Leeuw’s, in which far lower sums have been paid to victims of the Nazis.
