Similar to the freezing of terrorist assets in today's world, the U.S. attempted to prevent hostile interests from trading securities and thereby funding World War II efforts. That action also inadvertently blocked the securities of victims from those same countries. It turns out that TFEL-2 was a form that allowed friendly, non-hostile foreign nationals to trade American securities during the war. Quoting Chapter III, Assets in the United States, this curious form, TFEL-2, was attached to securities "if the owners could prove that they were free from any blocked interest.
