NPR's Ari Shapiro reports on a court ruling that the U.S. government should compensate Hungarian Holocaust survivors and their descendents for millions of dollars worth of valuables stolen during World War II. Though the Nazis were the original culprits, the loot eventually ended up in the hands of U.S. troops.
