Protest Planned Against Allianz For Nazi Ties During Boca Raton Event

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A major protest is planned for Sunday morning near the old course at Broken Sound — the site of this weekend’s Allianz Championship — by a group stating that it is inappropriate for a company with ties to Nazi Germany to be sponsoring an event in Boca Raton.

By some estimations, Boca Raton is home to the tenth largest Jewish community in the United States.

The protest is expected to start at 10a at the intersection of Yamato Road and Broken Sound Blvd.

The protestors, part of “Shalom International,” say that Allianz — a German insurance company — has its roots in Nazi leadership and continues to refuse to pay ten of thousands of insurance policies owed to Holocaust survivors and victim’s heirs.

Shalom International is asking Allianz to respond to the following requests:

1. Publish the names of all Allianz and related European insurance policy holders between 1920 and 1945 on the internet, including later acquired companies like RAS.

2. Publish all records relating to Allianz’s provision of insurance to the Government of Germany, the German Army, the SS, governments of occupied countries, and all other war related business between 1933 and 1945, including records relating to coverage of Nazi concentration camps.

3. Support legislation allowing Holocaust survivors and heirs to bring legal action in U.S. courts


4. Disgorge $2 billion, representing unjust enrichment from Holocaust era, to be paid to those that were insured and their heirs and to fund social services for Holocaust survivors in need worldwide.


The Allianz Championship is underway this weekend at Broken Sound.
