Yes.  Great story, other than the minor detail that it is mostly
false.  Here's a story from Der Speigel, an actual news magazine, that

Also see this story in which German gold bug Peter Boehringer has an
impressive array of conspiracy theories about missing German gold,
except that it's all there.
