Deal Agreed in Holocaust ‘Gold Train’ Case Against U.S.

MIAMI (Reuters) — The U.S. government and lawyers for tens of thousands of Hungarian Holocaust survivors have agreed to settle a lawsuit seeking compensation for a trainload of gold, jewelry and other property seized by the U.S. Army at the end of World War II, lawyers for both sides said on Monday.

A lawyer for the plaintiffs, Sam Dubbin, said the agreement, which still has to be worked out in detail, would apply to between 30,000 and 50,000 Hungarian Jews whose property was stolen by the Nazis.
