According to the Good Will Compensation Law, which came into force in 2011, approximately 870,000 EUR was dedicated to support the persons of the Jewish nationality who resided in Lithuania during the Second World War and who suffered from the totalitarian regimes during the occupations. The Good Will Foundation completed all the payments to individuals by December 31, 2014. More than 1550 persons all over the world received symbolic compensation.
We had to overcome a great challenge of finding and contacting potential applicants for compensation. Applicants then had to submit an application including some obligatory documents. Finally, al compensations were successfully distributed in Israel, Lithuania, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Russia, Canada, Germany, Ukraine, Sweden, Austria, Belgium, Brasil, Denmark, Norway, Finland, France, Estonia, Latvia, Moldova, Mexico, Belarus, Portugal, Australia and the Republic of South Africa.
These symbolic compensations were paid out only once. As there are no more funding provided for such purpose, no additional or new payments are foreseen in the future.
