Victim of Nazi Art Trove Case: Germany's Handling 'Scandalous'


A granddaughter of German painter Otto Dix, a few of whose works were discovered in the vast trove of Nazi-looted art stashed in a Munich flat, has called Germany's approach to the Third Reich's spoils "scandalous," AFP reports.

"Germany, generally speaking, has never really addressed the issue of works of art seized by the Nazis. It should have done that much earlier, soon after the war," Nana Dix told AFP in a telephone interview from her Munich home. "A discovery like this has never happened and now that it has, I find it scandalous."
