Operation Safehaven

4/9/1945

During World War II the Allies' effort to persuade neutral countries to seize German assets deposited in their countries was code named Operation Safehaven. Safehaven documents in the National Archives are among those that have brought to light information about assets stolen from Holocaust victims. This page lists individuals, most of whom were Jewish, who tried to hide money from the Nazis by depositing it in Swiss bank accounts. These accounts were untouched between 1942 and 1945, and their owners probably perished in the Holocaust.
