An Italian insurance company said it was not responsible for settling insurance claims opened by Holocaust survivors in Eastern Europe. Assicurazioni Generali said its assets in Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary and other countries were seized during Communist takeovers after World War II and that those governments were now responsible for dealing with the claims. Generali executives made the comments in testimony before Florida’s state treasurer about thousands of insurance claims that have gone unpaid since the end of the war.
