Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the 1930s and 1940s, as Nazi Soldiers Goose-stepped across Europe, thousands of Jews looked to Switzerland for help. A bastion of neutrality, Switzerland seemed the ideal place to entrust with their life savings while they faced Hitler's genocidal fury. But after the war, the survivors and heirs of those Jews who trusted Swiss bankers, lawyers, and insurance companies to safeguard their savings found themselves rebuffed, lied to, or simply ignored. The banks either claimed the accounts did not exist or that ownership could not be proven, or they demanded official death certificates — something not found in the crematoriums of Auschwitz, Dachau, Treblinka, or the other death camps.

Nazi Gold is the first book to offer compelling evidence that Switzerland's most senior government officials and financial institutions conspired to keep billions in gold, jewelry, cash, and securities from the surviving heirs. Through exclusive interviews with sources in Argentina, England, France, Germany, and Switzerland itself, investigative journalist Tom Bower has unraveled the twisted trail of this conspiracy. Historically accurate and exhaustively researched, Nazi Gold documents this scandal in what is surely one of the most powerful books of the year.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 369) and index.
