Nazis steal 29 boxcars of Jewish gold and treasures
In mid 1944, squads of Nazis broke into their houses in Hungary, and took their gold and treasures.
They stole $ 200 mil ( $ 4 Billion 2004 dollars)
On May 9, 1945, a Nazis train left Budapest and barreled across Europe ( 29 boxcars full of gold) enroute to Germany, but the US army caught them first.
On May 16, 1945, infantry forces of the U.S. army seized a train in Werfen, Austria, sixty miles south of Salzburg. This train was laden with paintings, and other valuables, mostly taken from Hungarian Jews by Adolf Eichmann’s Nazi forces, and Hungarian collaborators.
The Legend’s Treasure
The boxcars that carried 1100 paintings, art and tons of gold.
The treasure was so vast it is hard to calculate. Jews said, Nazis stormed their houses and beat us senseless. “They pulled our gold teeth out with pliers, and stole our Jewelry, paintings, gold , statues etc”.
The Americans seized the train in Austria, and General Collins, Laude, Hume, Howard, and Linden, took everything to furnish their residences and offices. They smuggled the rest out of the country, and back to the US.
Less valuable objects, such as watches, cameras, and modest jewelry, were sold through the Army Exchange stores, or stolen from army warehouses. A notable example was the disappearance of a suitcase filled with gold dust.

Whoops Another Ridiculous Holocaust Fairy Tale
By May of 1945 the Allies controlled all of Europe. The Germans surrendered on May 7th, 1945. Budapest had been under Russian control for five months,
There were no Nazis in Hungary racing towards Germany on a Gold Train. Stories of 29 boxcars loaded with Mona Lisa’s, suitcases full of gold dust, boxes of gold teeth, and oriental rugs is total nonsense.
Hungary was a German ally, and later an occupied country, and the 870,000 Jews were never touched.
Budapest had been occupied by the Russians since Jan 1945, but somehow the Nazis managed to rob the Jews.
The USA is paying the USHMM $250,000 to set up an exhibit.
