Those of you following the Claims Conference imbroglio may be interested in viewing the attached TV segment currently being televised in North America. It presents a discussion concerning the Claims Conference failure to prioritize the needs of survivors which I had with Sam Norich, a Claims Conference board member who is also the publisher of the US Jewish weekly newspaper “Forward”.
