Property looted from Hungarian Jews by the Nazis and their Hungarian collaborators was seized by American forces and subsequently taken by generals and soldiers in the U.S. Army, according to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Holocaust Assets in the United States. The property, carried aboard what the panel called the Hungarian Gold Train, was seized by the army on May 16, 1945, the commission added Thursday during a meeting in Washington.
