United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York,
Chief Judge Edward R. Korman Presiding (CV-96-4849)
This is the official information website for the Claims Resolution Tribunal of the Holocaust Victim Assets Litigation against Swiss Banks and other Swiss Entities. The Claims Resolution Tribunal is responsible for processing claims relating to assets deposited in Swiss banks by Victims or Targets of Nazi persecution prior to and during the Second World War.
2001 and 2005 Publications
In February 2001, the Claims Resolution Tribunal (“CRT”) published the names of the owners of approximately 21,000 accounts that probably or possibly belonged to victims of Nazi persecution. In January 2005, the CRT published approximately 2,700 additional names of Account Owners and approximately 400 additional names of Power of Attorney holders of accounts probably or possibly belonging to Victims of Nazi Persecution.
Attention: Please note that all deadlines to file claims related to the names and/or accounts appearing on these lists with the CRT have passed. At this point, these previously published lists of names of Account Owners and names of Power of Attorney Holders appear on this website for informational purposes only.
Deposited Assets Claims
The CRT has received over 32,000 claims from Nazi victims or their heirs to assets deposited in Swiss banks in the period before and during World War II. In addition, the CRT is processing an additional approximately 40,000 Initial Questionnaires, which were submitted to the Court in 1999 by potential class members. Although these Initial Questionnaires were not Claim Forms, the Court, in an Order signed on July 30, 2001 , ordered that those Initial Questionnaires which can be processed as claim forms be treated as timely claims. The claims process is part of the settlement of the Holocaust Victim Assets class action litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Chief Judge Edward R. Korman presiding ("the Court"). For a description of the claims process currently underway, please click here.
