I recall a story my grandfather told me of how they came across an abandoned train. It had some sleeper cars, freight cars and flak flatbeds. The interesting part is the freight cars. They had furniture, flat crates, boxes and four Luftwaffe staff cars. Curiousity got to them and they started to look through the crates and found some unmarked gold bars, jewels, currency (foreign) some statues and documents. Being on the run, they helped themselves to whatever they could take and loaded into their AFV. To make a long story short, does anybody know if all of the loot taken by the Germans was ever accounted for? Has anybody heard of stories similar to this? My grandfather showed me 6 of the gold bars that he still had with him after all these years. I have not known him to tell tall tales when it comes to the war. ------------------ "They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country.
