Summary
  • Nazi Gold is the expose of the fifty-year conspiracy by Swiss bankers to steal deposits by European Jews and help German Nazis hide the money they looted from Jewish victims of the Holocaust. It is also about a group of dedicated Americans with the U.S. Treasury Department - Sam Klaus, Orvis Schmidt, James Mann, and Seymour Rubin, to name a few - who struggled tirelessly for many years following World War II, with little support from the British and French, to get the Swiss to release the deposits to the rightful owners or their heirs. Finally, Nazi Gold is about the victims themselves - constantly rebuffed, denied, and humiliated in their efforts to recover their money and survive in a postwar world that showed them nothing but indifference, prejudice, and hate
  • Based on intensive research and incontrovertible evidence, Nazi Gold is the last dramatic chapter in the history of the Holocaust. Tom Bower, a distinguished British investigative historian, reveals for the first time in full the despicable role played by Swiss banks and the Swiss government in exploiting World War II and the persecution of the Jews to their financial advantage. He describes how Swiss industries manufactured and sold military equipment to the Germans during the war at a substantial profit, then after the war cynically turned away survivors and heirs of victims of the Holocaust with lies, obfuscation, and impossible-to-satisfy demands for proof of relationship to deceased depositors
  • Drawing on a wealth of previously unpublished and sensational source material, as well as interviews with many individuals on all sides of the controversy, Bower is also able to re-create important and secret meetings and telephone conversations that are often astounding in the bluntness of their revelations
