Gold Tablet


In a handout photocopy from court records shows the 3,200-year-old gold tablet at the center of a court case between a Holocaust survivor’s family and a Berlin museum in Albany, N.Y. In a ruling rejecting any claims to the "spoils of war," New York's highest court concluded Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013, that an ancient gold tablet must be returned to the German museum that lost it in World War II. The Court of Appeals unanimously agreed that Riven Flamenbaum's estate is not entitled to the 3,000-year-old Assyrian relic, a 9.5-gram (.34-ounce) tablet nearly the size of a credit card.
