Justice for Looting of the Hungarian Gold Train

Some local folks at the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg just won a very worthwhile victory:

Payback Time For Looting of ‘Hungarian Gold Train’

"When the United States Army interceded a train carrying loot stolen from Hungarian Jews near the end of World War II, the liberators became villains. That was because $200 million of personal property carried by Nazis in the “Hungarian Gold Train” was never returned to the rightful owners. Now following a class action lawsuit, the U.S. government has agreed to a $25 million settlement, distributing funds to the Hungarian Holocaust victims."
