The first $4.2 million has been distributed to needy Holocaust survivors from the settlement of a lawsuit stemming from the US seizure in 1945 of a Nazi "gold train" loaded with valuables belonging to Hungarian Jews, lawyers involved in the case said Monday. The money, part of an overall $25.5m. settlement approved in September by a Miami federal judge, has been distributed to Jewish social services agencies for the benefit of Holocaust survivors in the US, Australia, Canada, Hungary, Israel, Romania and Sweden.
