"In 1952, the Federal Republic of Germany reached agreement with Israel for the payment of $222 million, following a claim . Israel which was limited to the costs of resettling 500,000 Jews who had fled from Nazi controlled countries. Much later, in 1990, Austria made payments totalling $25 milllion to survivors cf the Jewish holocaust.
As noted above, Israel successfully claimed reparations from West Germany for the costs of resettling Jewish refugees - even though the state of Israel did not exist at the time when the Nazi regime committed its crimes against the Jews. It is also significant that West Germany, which felt obliged to meet the claim, was also a different state, territorially as well as politically, from the German Reich which was responsible for the atrocities."

The U.S. paid reparations to Japanese-Americans, but not Jews, afaik.
