Only slight wear; DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped, bright, solid book ; B&W Photographs; 1.3 x 9.4 x 6.2 Inches; 325 pages; It was the largest organised robbery in history - the systematic looting of Europe's Jews by the Nazis and most of the nations of Europe: Axis, Allied and Neutral. .... details the full scope of this monumental theft of money, gold, jewels, art, and property that began in Germany with the rise of Hitler, continued through the Holocaust and Occupation of Europe and culminated in a post-war cloaking campaign that stretched from Scandinavia to the Balkans. Chesnoff, who was among the first newsmen to break the story that Swiss banks were still hoarding the assets of Holocaust victims, travelled to eleven countries to research this compelling story of human greed. With direct access to hitherto classified files and through exclusive interviews with bankers, government and Jewish officials, as well as the families of victims, Chesnoff tells a vivid tale that will make the headlines of tomorrow's newspapers. The book reveals new details that many governments and bank officials would prefer to remain secret and describes the detective work used to trace Holocaust assets still hidden in nations such as France, Norway and the Netherlands.
