U.S. and Israel Call on Germany to Return Artwork Stolen by Nazis

FSWC Reports:


In an unusual step, the Israeli government asked Germany last week to act towards retrieving an art collection to the heirs of its Jewish owners. The owners were forced to sell the collection to the Nazi regime in 1935 in a process the heirs claim was illegal.
A hearing on the fate of the collection was supposed to take place in Berlin Tuesday, but it was called off at the request of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, which currently holds it.
