Intern, Film Department (Remote)
The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference), a nonprofit organization with offices in New York, Israel and Germany, secures material compensation for Holocaust survivors around the world. Founded in 1951 by representatives of 23 major international Jewish organizations, the Claims Conference negotiates for and disburses funds to individuals and organizations and seeks the return of Jewish property stolen during the Holocaust.
In 2021, the Claims Conference distributed approximately $820 million in direct compensation to over 210,000 survivors in 83 countries and allocated approximately $650 million in grants to over 300 social service agencies worldwide that provide vital services for Holocaust survivors, such as homecare, food and medicine. Our Research, Education, and Documentation (RED) funds contribute toward international efforts of film directors and museums to preserve the memory of the Holocaust, such as the film Son of Saul, an Oscar Award winner for Best Foreign Film. At the Claims Conference, we make history as we honor history.
