Holocaust Survivors to Protest on Unpaid Insurance

Monday, 28 Feb 2011 04:01 PM

 

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Aging survivors of the Nazi Holocaust intend to protest outside a fundraiser featuring President Barack Obama to bring attention to an estimated $20 billion in Jewish insurance policies they say were never paid.

Members of Holocaust Survivors' Foundation USA said Monday they want Obama and Florida Sen. Bill Nelson to push legislation that would force European insurance companies to disclose lists of pre-World War II policies. They also want the right to sue the insurers in U.S. courts.

The Democratic fundraiser is Friday.

The group claims that both Nelson and Obama have not acted on previous promises to push the issue. Nelson defended his past work on Holocaust-era policies and noted some Jewish groups oppose the legislation.
