The son of a Holocaust survivor recovered a cache of gold coins his family had buried in Poland during the Holocaust. Working with a Polish investigator, Mark Biederman, 43, helped recover the cache of 63 old gold coins that the family had buried in a ceramic pot beside the family home in Lodz. Biederman, from southern Ontario, was planning to fly to Poland this week to take possession of the coins, which are said to be worth a fortune.
