US Holocaust survivors expressed dismay on Thursday that documents found in Vienna were not used to help settle insurance claims by descendants of Jews whose families had property seized by the Nazis. Part of the document cache, which includes World War II-era deportation lists, emigration documents, letters and photos found in Vienna in 2000, will be included in an exhibition that opens in the Austrian capital next month. The Holocaust Survivors Foundation USA issued a statement demanding to know why the materials apparently were not brought to the attention of groups trying to win compensation for Holocaust victims and their relatives.
