gold, 92 gold bars in a crashed car by saskia boddeke and peter greenaway
On May 7, 1945, 92 gold bars are discovered in a crashed car at Bolzano. Every gold bar in the crash is made from gold confiscated from the victims of the Third Reich and its allies across Europe, from prisoners of war, gypsies, political enemies, and the mentally and physically handicapped, but mainly from Jews. Each gold bar has a history. Gold relates those 92 histories, along with a postscript of the histories of nine more gold bars that should have been in that crash.
