Washington (dpa) - The International Commission on Holocaust-Era Insurance Claims (ICHEIC) has paid more than 300 million dollars to 48,000 Holocaust survivors and their heirs, according to a final report issued Tuesday.

Formed in 1998 to address claims of unpaid insurance policies, The commission said that it has concluded the claims and appeals processes. More than 70 European insurance companies participated in the commission process.

"I fully recognize that no amount of compensation can redress the suffering inflicted during the Holocaust," said Chairman Lawrence Eagleburger, former US secretary of state. "Nevertheless, I believe that ICHEIC has achieved its goal of bringing a small measure of justice to those who have been denied for so long."
