Absolutely phenomenal article by Sacha Pfeiffer about Nazi Looted Art


I'm been following to a certain extent the whole business of 'returning' Nazi looted art to rich people vaguely related to the people it was stolen from, and been following closely how it makes them filthy rich. In Sunday's Boston Globe there is a wonderful and amazing article by Sacha Pfeiffer about the fight between Maria-Louise Bissonnette and the lawyers for McGill University, Concordia University, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel along with the Max Stern Foundation.

I never knew that Mr. Stern had been paid in the 1960's when 'a German restitution court recognized that it had been forcibly sold and awarded Stern damages for his lost profit.' Nor did I know lots of the other details mentioned in the article. Major props and shout outs to Mr. Pfeiffer.
