German compensation for Nazi sect is not enough compare to 40 years of work without pay - Victim says

Victims of a Chile-based Nazi pedophile sect said compensation offered by Germany was not enough to make up for decades of slavery and abuse.

Germany said Friday it would pay up to 10,000 euros ($11,000) each to victims of the "Colonia Dignidad" commune founded by a former Nazi soldier.

"It's a help, yes, but it does not solve the problem. We are a lost generation," Horst Schaffrick, a German who arrived at the enclave with his family at the age of three, told AFP.

Schaffrick suffered sexual abuse by former Wehrmacht soldier Paul Schaefer, who founded the sect in southern Chile in 1961.

The compensation "covers very little, if you compare it to the 40 years of work without pay," said Schaffrick, who also referred to "the suffering caused by slavery, beatings, drugs and sexual abuse for 20 years."

"How am I going to continue in my old age, how am I going to live? It cannot be solved, that's what is serious about this situation," he said.
