Germany Refuses to Return Art to Jewish Heirs

FSWC Reports:

From the Associated Press via

The German government has refused a request to hand back two paintings once owned by a Jewish businessman persecuted by the Nazis.

Germany's Finance Ministry said it would not return the 18th-century paintings by Bernardo Bellotto to the heirs of Max Emden because he had already fled to Switzerland when he sold them.
