An official with the World Jewish Congress said the group is making progress in talks with a German bank on claims against it by Holocaust survivors. The talks with Deutsche Bank “have entered a rather constructive phase,” said WJC Executive Director Elan Steinberg. The bank is facing a class-action lawsuit from survivors, who allege it profited from trade in Holocaust victims’ gold. At least one U.S. regulator has called for a delay in the bank’s planned merger with the U.S. firm Bankers Trust until the claims are settled.
