Medieval crucifix found in Austrian rubbish skip





An 800-year-old, gold-plated
crucifix that went missing after being seized by the
Nazis has been found in a rubbish skip in Austria,
police said.

The crucifix, made of copper and enamel, was crafted
in Limoges, France, and was part of a Polish art
collection brought to Austria during Nazi rule, Josef
Holzberger, police spokesman in Salzburg, said on
Thursday.
