In this Wednesday April 16, 2014 photo,  Charlotte van den Berg poses for a portrait outside the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, rear, in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam’s city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps. Van den Berg waged a lonely fight against Amsterdam’s modern bureaucracy to have the travesty publicly recognized. Now, largely due to her efforts, Amsterdam officials are considering compensating Holocaust survivors for the taxes and possibly other obligations, including gas bills, they were forced to pay for homes that were occupied by Nazis or collaborators while the rightful owners were in hiding or awaiting death in the camps.

FILE -This Dec. 5, 2012, file photo shows Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. on Capitol Hill in Washington. An indefinite extension to the government’s review of the contentious Keystone oil pipeline, announced late Friday, April 18, 2014, by the State Department, is doing little to quell the political posturing over the project, which has taken on a life of its own as climate change activists duke it out with energy advocates from both parties. For Landrieu, whose competitive race in Louisiana will help determine whether Democrats retain control of the Senate, the delay comes at a particularly sensitive moment. Landrieu recently took the helm of the Senate Energy Committee, and has been touting her new position to argue that she offers voters in oil-dependent Louisiana the best chance to influence America’s energy policies _ including approval of Keystone XL.
