Description

This story is the culmination of 10 years of reporting on the fate of thousands of artworks looted from victims of the Holocaust. In 1984, ARTnews revealed the Austrian government's neglect, hostility and questionable legal maneuvers in returning the works to their rightful owners in A Legacy of Shame: Nazi Art Loot in Austria. Nearly every since, ARTnews correspondents have reported on the problem. Last July, the Austrian parliament passed a law transferring ownership of the nearly 8,000 items to the Jewish Community of Vienna. (September 1995)
