"Never again" is now

We all condemn the terror attack of Hamas against Israel. And we see with horror the suffering of civilians in Israel and Gaza. As German companies, we stand against all forms of hatred and anti-Semitism. 

We are conscious of our historical responsibility. That is why we ask everyone to join us in standing shoulder-to-shoulder with our fellow Jewish citizens, within our companies and across our country, in a spirit of solidarity. There is no place for hatred against Jews in Germany. "Never again" is the obligation of every individual. "Never again" is now.

Allianz joined other German companies in asking everyone to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our fellow Jewish citizens, within our companies and across our country, in a spirit of solidarity.

One year after the German floods: "The scale of the disaster is extreme"

A year after the devastating flood, the Ahr valley region in Germany still resembles a construction site and claims settlements in some cases are still being resolved. Allianz’s Versicherungs AG Board Member Jochen Haug explains why this is the case and why he sees "light at the end of the tunnel."
