'Rebuilding Hitler's War Machine' US Investors Sue Germany Over Weimar-Era Bonds

A group of American investors have filed several lawsuits to pressure Germany to honor bonds issued by the Weimar Republic. Hitler banned repayment of the bonds and Berlin says a deadline for registering the bonds passed decades ago. Should Germany lose, it could cost the country billions.
Nobody is quite sure what these bonds, issued by the Weimar Republic in the 1920s, might be worth today.
