Compensation for WWII Forced Labor

DaimlerChrysler and other German companies (including some subsidiaries of U.S. companies) were named defendants in class actions seeking to recover compensation on behalf of individuals forced to work for those companies by Nazi Germany during World War II. In 2000, the companies, including DaimlerChrysler, reached an agreement with the German government to establish the $4.4 billion Remembrance, Responsibility and the Future Foundation to provide humanitarian assistance and compensation to the victims of forced labor and other injustices suffered under that regime. All lawsuits filed against DaimlerChrysler were subsequently dismissed.
