Horror Not Forgotten

Organizations that assist Holocaust survivors would share up to $25 million under a bill the House sent President Clinton on Tuesday. The measure, approved by voice vote, also authorizes an additional $5 million for archival research to help with the restitution of assets that were looted or extorted from Holocaust victims.
