Israeli Museums To Identify Stolen Nazi Art


Hashava - The Company for Location and Restitution of Holocaust Victims’ Assets will conduct discussions with Israeli museums to identify works of art looted by the Nazis. The discussion, scheduled to take place on Thursday, is the first time that Israeli museums are talking with Holocaust victims and their legal heirs to correctly identify important paintings and other heirlooms which could have ended up on display. During the Holocaust, the German Nazi regime confiscated countless works of art from Jewish families and others.
