What role did Protectorate insurance companies have in financing World War II and in supporting the German war economy? How was German influence asserted in the Protectorate insurance industry? Who benefited from the Aryanization of life insurance policies and how was it organized? How did the insurance business work? Why did an international process of compensation for insurance claims from the Holocaust period start in the late 1990s? Can people in the Czech Republic still request the payment of life insurance policies for their deceased relatives? These are the questions to which this monograph attempts to provide answers.
