Refugee in Palestine to Get Fortune He Hid in French Railway Car

A small fortune in platinum, gold and jewelry, wrapped in a German newspaper, was found today in the washroom of a railway car that was brought into the Troyes railway station for repairs. The package contained a note asking the finder to deliver it to an address in Palestine. The French authorities believe the package belonged to a German Jew who either was unable to leave the Reich or feared to risk taking the valuables with him when he emigrated. The police are forwarding the parcel to the address in Palestine.
