The International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims

ICHEIC was established in 1998 following negotiations among European insurance companies and U.S. insurance regulators, as well as representatives of international Jewish and survivor organizations and the State of Israel.
ICHEIC's settlement agreements with various insurance companies and the German Foundation "Remembrance, Responsibility, and Future" provide for funds to be made available for humanitarian purposes related to the Holocaust. 
The ICHEIC Program for Holocaust Education in Europe is charged with preserving and perpetuating the memory of the Holocaust and its lessons, combating the rise in antisemitism, safeguarding human rights and preventing racism and xenophobia.
