As part of the settlement of the historic “Gold Train” lawsuit, United States Judge Patricia A. Seitz has approved a plan submitted by plaintiffs’ counsel to provide $500,000 to museums in the US and Israel to establish and compile an archive of records and artifacts documenting the Gold Train events, as well as the fate of Hungarian Jews in the Holocaust.

The institutions selected, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority, will each receive $250,000 for use in compiling and managing the archive, in accordance with the settlement by the US government of the “Gold Train” class action lawsuit brought by Hungarian Holocaust survivors and their heirs.
