hide The Swiss Banks Holocaust Settlement claims program is now closed, and this website is no longer being updated. It remains online through the assistance of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. This program was operated by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, beginning with the class action lawsuits filed in 1996 and completed with the last distributions to claimants in 2020. This website contains information about the Swiss Banks Holocaust litigation, settlement and distribution process, the Special Masters’ filings including the proposed Distribution Plan and the Final Report, as well as links to the Court’s decisions and other relevant filings and materials.

This is the official website of the Swiss Banks Settlement: In re Holocaust Victim Assets Litigation.
Please note that all deadlines to file claims relating to the Swiss Banks Holocaust Settlement have expired.
