hide The Claims Resolution Tribunal (“CRT”) of the Holocaust Victim Assets Litigation, the administrative agency responsible for processing claims relating to assets deposited in Swiss Banks and other Swiss entities by Victims or Targets of Nazi persecution prior to and during the Second World War, is now closed. The CRT operated in Zurich and, for certain functions, in New York, under the direct supervision of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York and the Court-appointed Special Masters. This website, which contains information about the deposited assets claims of the Swiss Banks Holocaust litigation, the Court’s decisions, and other relevant filings and materials, is no longer being updated. However, the website and all attached documents and links will continue to remain available online, through the assistance of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, for historical purposes.


    This website provides information about the Tribunal established in 1997 to adjudicate claims to dormant accounts published by the Swiss Bankers Association in July and October 1997 (accounts opened in Swiss banks by non-Swiss nationals or residents that have been dormant since 9 May 1945).
