BBC News | Americas | German firms face slave labour case
Volkswagen is one of the companies named in lawsuits filed in the US by Holocaust survivors who say they were used as slave labour. One survivor, Elly Gross, said she was separated from her family at Auschwitz, where her mother and brother died, and taken to work at a VW factory. She said: "Auschwitz was the hell. The factory where I worked was the skirt of the hell."

BBC News | UK | Holocaust victims win battle for lost property
Holocaust survivors who had their assets seized in Britain have won a victory in the fight to reclaim their property. The government has set up a new fast-track procedure to allow victims and their decendants to claim cash, valuables and other property that was seized under the 1939 Trading with the Enemy Act.
One of those victims was Louis Mezei, a Hungarian Jew who placed his money in Britain with Lloyd's Bank in London for safe keeping during Hitler's rise to power. After Hungary sided with the Third Reich, Mr Mezei and his brother Ferenc were rounded up and shipped off to Mauthausen concentration camp. After the war, Louis tried to claim his money back from Lloyds, but was turned away by the British Government.

The Secret (Insurance) Agent Men
by Mark Fritz
Los Angeles Times
September 22, 2000
American insurance companies had been competing furiously for overseas business even after the United States entered the war, and the OSS files suggest that details about U.S. factories and cities were falling into enemy hands because of the interlocking international relationships among insurance companies.
The documents also said that two New York insurance executives, Cecil Stewart and Stewart Hopps, also came under scrutiny for selling war insurance to strategic U.S. industries and reselling some of the risk to Latin American affiliates linked to Nazi insurers. The men also ran a steamship company that chartered tankers for Royal Dutch Shell, a Nazi collaborator that used [Adolf Hitler]'s slave laborers.
When the tide of the war began to turn and German insurers began losing money, the U.S. insurance agents learned that Nazi insurers were pleading for peace. A source in Stockholm revealed in late 1943 that insurers advised Hitler's people that "ruin threatens all life and fire insurance companies in Germany." WWII unit gathered underwriters’ data, such as bomb plant blueprints, from warring nations, declassified U.S. files show.
