Setting up victim fund

In 1995, 50 years after the end of the Second World War, Austria passed legislation to create a 50 million dollar fund for Nazi victims in an attempt to face a past where Austrians actively participated in the crimes of Nazism. The fund will be established for some 30,000 people who were thrown into concentration camps because they were Jews, Communists or homosexuals, and for those who fled into exile.

The United Nations Compensation Commission administers the UN Compensation Fund and ensure payment of claims for any direct loss, damage, including environmental damage and the depletion of natural resources, or injury to foreign governments, nationals and corporations, as a result of Iraq's unlawful invasion and occupation of Kuwait.
