Please forward this message to all
Jews or descendants of Holocaust victims on your address book list. Print
the message and hang it in your synagogue or other Jewish organization.
Even if you are under 30 years of age this message is for you. This is
an urgent message for all Jewish families whose parents, grandparents,
great grandparents, or they themselves lived in Europe between 1920 and
1945. Hundreds of thousands of Jews purchased Life insurance, education
or dowry annuities in the years prior to Holocaust. As a result of the
Holocaust most of these policies went unpaid. In some cases the companies
actually paid the death benefits of Jews murdered in Auschwitz to Hitler.
A portion of this money may belong to your family.
How Can I get
the money? Keep Reading!
There is now a simple way to claim
this money without any fees or expense to you or your family whatsoever.
Insurance Commissioners in California, New York, Washington State, Florida
and other states demanded that the European Insurance Companies pay legitimate
claims or loose the right to sell insurance in these very lucrative markets.
As a result of this pressure, together with the Claims Conference, the
State of Israel, and various survivor organizations, the Insurance companies
agreed to participate in what has become the International Commission on
Holocaust Era Insurance Claims (ICHEIC).
See the website
This Commission chaired by Former
Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleberger has been established to quickly
settle any legitimate Insurance claims that were unpaid after the Shoah.
Even though tens of thousands of
Jewish families are owed money there have been very few claims to date.
Our families bought insurance so that there would be an estate in the event
of their death. They did this out of love and caring and it would be a
crime to let the Insurance companies keep your family's money.
Most families say sure, it is logical
that MY ANCESTERS OWNED insurance policies, but we have no hard evidence.
So they don't bother to apply. You do not need to have hard evidence. You
only need to know the names of your family, where they lived and their
approximate birth year. With that information the Commission will have
each of the member companies search their archives. If there is a match,
they will pay the entire amount adjusted to current value of the policy.
There is no limit. Hundreds have already received their checks in some
cases as much as $50,000 or more.
are happy there have been so few claims
The money to pay for these claims
comes out of the general funds of these companies so they are delighted
there have been so few claims. If they keep the money...the crime of the
Holocaust continues to this day.
