Report Reveals Germany Returned Nazi-Looted Artworks to Nazi Families Instead of Victims (English)
1 reference
The investigation reveals that in some cases, artworks were sold at deflated prices to the families of Nazi officials rather than being restituted to the victims’ families. In other cases, the state of Bavaria simply kept the artworks. State-owned museums in Munich profited in particular from art looted by the Nazis at least until the 1990s, the study shows. (English)

Among the high ranking Nazi families negotiating to get back looted art were the Goering, Hoffmann, Bormann, von Schirach, Frank, and Streicher families, who often negotiated directly with the director of the Bavarian State Museums and ministers in the Bavarian government. (English)
