Stolen Legacy’s revelations prompt change
The Times of Israel has published an article by me about the decision of Mannheim University to rename the Dr. Kurt-Hamann Foundation. The name change to “Foundation for the Promotion of Insurance Science at the University of Mannheim” will become final when approved by the regional government in nearby Karlsruhe, to which the paperwork has been sent.
This decision was prompted following my discovery of information relating to the activities of Dr. Hamann, the former head of the Victoria Insurance Company, during the Third Reich.
Past president of the university, Professor Dr. Ernst-Ludwig von Thadden has written to me saying:
I am most grateful to you for all the work you have done to shed light and make progress on the Kurt-Hamann Foundation. Without you, I do not think that the University would have known what it knows today and would have been able to act the way it has in the last few years.
The whole university owes you a debt of gratitude.
