Switzerland not only financed the Nazis and refused admission to the Jewish refugees fleeing them; the country’s most senior government officials and financial institutions systematically conspired to keep billions in gold and other valuables deposited by Jews in Swiss banks or stolen by the Nazis from their rightful heirs. Tom Bower and Adam Lebor explore the infamous tale.


Adam LeBor is an author and journalist who writes for the Financial Times, Literary Review and other publications. He is the author of 14 works of fiction and non-fiction, including the ground-breaking Hitler’s Secret Bankers, which was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize.

Tom Bower is an acclaimed investigative journalist and best-selling biographer, author of 24 books including Nazi Gold, and the lives of Robert Maxwell, Richard Branson, Tony Blair, Prince Charles and Jeremy Corbyn.

Hella Pick CBE was born in Vienna and came to the UK on a Kindertransport. Specialising in foreign affairs, she was on the staff of the Guardian from 1961- 1997. Hella is the author of Simon Wiesenthal – A Life in Search of Justice, and Guilty Victim – Austria from the Holocaust to Haider.
