Nazi gold in German bank vault

Click to follow
A Jewish organisation yesterday called for a search of German bank vaults after it emerged that two Nazi-looted bars of gold were transferred to the Bank of England as recently as last September.

The two bars were originally obtained by the Nazis in 1942 from the Bank of France where the Belgians had placed them for safe-keeping. The Deutsche Bundesbank found them last year and passed them to the Tripartite Gold Commission fund which was set up to oversee the return of the looted gold. Louise Jury
