Nazi Gold: The Full Story of the Fifty-Year Swiss-Nazi Conspiracy to Steal Billions from Europe's Jews and Holocaust Survivors
Praise for Nazi Gold
A compelling book on one of the greatest robberies of all time.
--Rabbi Marvin Heir, dean, Simon Wesenthal Center
Nazi Gold [is] a compelling, outraged, carefully researched book. . . Tom Bower, one of the finest investigative journalists in the English-speaking world over the past generation. . .is the ideal chronicler for this story. Over the past 20 years he has built up a track record second to none in documenting crimes and conspiracies that the Nazis and their collaborators were able to cover up or escape from in the decades after 1945. . .Riveting, outstanding.
--Martin Sieff, Washington Times
Nazi Gold is an important book that uncovers much new material.
--Saul Friendlunder, author of Nazi Germany and the Jews
--Chicago Jewish Star
[A] sensational expose. . .Impressively revealing.
--Dade Jewish Star
