Vatican has Nazi gold?


#1

Sigh.

This is one of those side issues that has nothing to do with the cogency of Catholic theology, but it always comes up. Any thoughts on this?

Bump

Should I assume silence reflects the basis for the claims?

Assume that any gold that the Nazi’s might of had was stolen…

Now, where it wound up would be better than left in their hands… And that’s not saying it’s clear where it wound up, or who has just ownership…

If you assume all questions should be answered within 30 minutes from the time they are posted, then yes. :slight_smile:

no, you should assume that we are all rolling our eyes and ignoring the claims since the claims are old news that were never proven.

ok seriously. let’s not take info from random peoples personal sites. Whoever this Kozlich guy is, he can put whatever he want on his website, doesn’t make it true or at all based in the realm of reality. he has no footnotes or references to back up his claim. where did he get his info from?

vaticanbankclaims.com
try reading this page off their site: vaticanbankclaims.com/news.html. Sixth line down reads: JUNE 2003 DISTRICT COURT DISMISSES CASE.

two words in that article caught my eye: allege and rumors.

I wouldn’t be surprised, but simply because gold passes through so many hands.

I didn’t follow those links, but I can’t imagine that Uncle Adolf gave any money to the Vatican. He wanted gold, wealth, and other people’s riches to finance the Third Reich.

I don’t like these “rumor” questions in the forum – just my personal preference. People do a lot of crazy things about gold and rumors.
