First Paragraph

When Edgar Bronfman, head of the World Jewish Congress, went with Israel Singer to a meeting in Bern, Switzerland in September 1995 to ask the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) to investigate dormant accounts of Holocaust victims, the bankers proposed a settlement immediately. The bankers wanted to turn over $32 million discovered in 774 Jewish accounts since World War II (WWII).
