As a non Jewish person living in the U.S., this story saddens me greatly. It is unfathomable to me that these Swiss banks remained so uncooperative after the horrors of the Holocaust. To have stolen money and other valuables (i.e. paintings and jewelry) from these victims after all that they had endured. I do not understand how humanity can be so cruel.
