Former German Minister Condemns Behaviour of Museums For Not Investigating Possibility That Art in Their Possession Could Have Been Stolen by Nazis

FSWC Reports:

From Reuters:

A German pensioner's decision to let experts check his art trove for Nazi-looted treasures contrasts sharply with the approach of some museums that may hold works stolen from Holocaust victims, a former minister said on Tuesday.

Over 2,000 German museums hold works created before 1945 and acquired after the Nazis came to power in 1933, according to the Institute for Museum Research in Berlin. Some of them could have been looted or extorted from Jewish owners by the Nazis.
