Art Stolen by the Nazis Discovered in Munich
Thursday, November 07, 2013
More than one thousand works of art stolen by the Nazi’s were discovered in a Munich apartment this week. Valued at nearly $1.35 billion, the trove includes works by Matisse, Picasso, Dix and Chagall believed to have been seized from museums and Jewish collectors. It has also been revealed that the US military may have inspected part of collection after World War II and then returned it to Nazi art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt. Dr. Christoph Zuschlag, a professor of art history at the University of Koblenz in Landau, Germany, and David Lewis, co-chair of the Commission for Looted Art in Europe, talk about the discovery.
