3.1. The [Transferor(s)] transfers to the [taker] the samples of material (s) covered by Article 2 of this agreement, under the conditions set out in the following paragraphs. Comment: The definition of benefits to be shared will be very different depending on the needs of the transferor (s), the needs of designated beneficiaries such as Aboriginal or local communities, the commercial value of the transferred physical samples, the expected use of the samples, the likelihood of using the samples to produce a commercially viable product, and other factors. Therefore, it is not appropriate to propose a model formula for the nature of benefits or how benefits should be shared, as no uniform definition will be appropriate in all circumstances. Edwin Black spoke about his book The Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine (Dialog Press); 25th anniversary, August 25, 2009). It told the story of an agreement between the Hitler government and a group of Zionist leaders in 1933. The agreement required the transfer of 55,000 Jews and $100 million to Palestine in exchange for Jewish organizations bombing of a proposed economic boycott of Nazi Germany. [Identify physical samples of regulated genetic resources that need to be transferred.] The Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine is a book by author Edwin Black that documents the « Haavara Agreement » between Zionist organizations and Nazi Germany to transfer a number of Jews and their property to Palestine. Shortly after Samuel Untermyer returned from Germany to the United States in 1933, front-page newspaper articles in London and New York stated, « Judea declares war on Germany. » This led to an effective boycott of German products in many countries, which greatly affected German exports. The agreement was partly inspired by the boycott, which seemed to threaten the Empire.  Controversial, as can be seen after the fact, it marked one of the few salvations of the Jews and their fortunes in the years leading up to the Holocaust.  It is recognized that, in some cases, it is beneficial to pass on « traditional knowledge » related to a regulated genetic resource, as well as samples of the resource.
This version of the model does not contain provisions for traditional knowledge transfer, but this model could be extended to convey traditional knowledge. It should be noted that Part V of the book also documents the controversy within the Zionist movement and the Jewish diaspora over the agreement that shows schwarz « to tear the Jewish world apart in the pre-World War II period ». In particular, it describes the conflict between German Zionists and local German elected officials in the United States who argued for the agreement and, on the other hand, the traditional Eastern European leaders of American Jewish Zionists (such as the American Jewish Committee and Denjewish War Veterans) who opposed the agreement and called for a total boycott of Nazi Germany. 4.1.
