Man Behind Nazi Art Trove Refuses to Give Up Works
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on November 17th, 2013 @ 10:48PM

WSJ

"BERLIN—The Munich man from whom German authorities confiscated an art trove they believe includes Nazi-looted works broke his silence, saying he isn't willing to return any of the art to previous owners, including pieces taken from Jews."

Hang em high?

Yup. That`s incredibly selfish and ridiculous. That sort of trove belongs to all of humanity

Let him keep it.

The reality is, he didn't actually steal it himself. so taking it from him is just doing the same thing.

It's american politics in a nut shell.

half of the paitings are rightfully his anyway. the irony is that most of those in question have been given back to him after ww2 by the US.

its a giant mob mentality thats going on against this person. the press is already going batshit because the word "nazi" is attached to this matter.

trolling a 80 year old. he already said he will die soon anyway and since he has no relatives the paintings will probably belong to the german state.

Like most legal issues, there's no clear answer on this one. It seems from the article that some of the works were acquired legitimately, and others in a questionable manner (bribing some Russian to bring paintings over the Iron Curtain).

Any of the artwork that was stolen should either A) be returned to the owners / heirs or B) forfeited to the state for public display. Just because he's the last guy holding onto (allegedly) stolen articles doesn't mean he gets to keep it (even if he didn't participate in the theft).

At any rate, the old man will likely be long dead and gone before this fiasco gets sorted out.

right. but then you give it back to the person it actually belongs to, which is the desired outcome.

you can't buy stolen cars or dvd players or anything, why should you be able to buy stolen art?

The state of the art is questionable, but not provably stolen. Until then, he should get to keep his belongings, and each "proven" item taken from him on a case-by-case basis.

This is a stupid article, and I hope it's not actually gaining any publicity.

you don't get to keep a stolen car until it's proven to be or not be stolen, its impounded until stuff is cleared up
