    People enter the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012. Sixty years after a landmark accord started German government compensation for victims of Nazi crimes, fund administrators and German officials say payments to Holocaust survivors are needed more than ever as they enter their final years. In acknowledgement of that, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble was to sign off officially Thursday on revisions to the original 1952 compensation treaty, increasing pensions for those living in eastern Europe and broadening who is eligible for payments.

    Eugene van Deutekom, archivist and historian for the Roman Catholic diocese of 's-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands, inspects statues stored in the basement of the Museum of Religious Art in the southern Dutch city of Uden, March 20, 2012. In the Netherlands, where faith has faded more dramatically than in many other parts of Europe, two churches close down on average every week. The sacred art left over is piling up in cellars and storerooms around the country. Some congregations elsewhere have the opposite problem. New Catholic and Protestant churches are springing up in Latin America, Africa and Asia, and pastors in eastern Europe are seeking to refurbish churches used for decades as warehouses or factories.

The union representing professional footballers says players are being mistreated by clubs in Eastern Europe, in some cases leading to the greater risk of match-fixing. FIFPro says clubs in Eastern Europe show a "terrifying lack of respect" for fundamental rights of professionals, ranging from withholding wages to beatings.
