Heir asks the Dutch Nazi-raging art & # 39; back NOW


An heir of the Dutch Jewish art dealer Nathan and Benjamin Katz tried by the US court to create 143 artworks after World War II the property of # 39; the Dutch state.

Nazate Bruce Berg has filed the case for the court in Charleston, South Carolina, reports The New York Times. The collection contains Dutch masterpieces from the seventeenth century hanging in many Dutch museums.

In the war, the Katz brothers company with Rijksmarschalk Hermann Göring and Hans Posse gathered the Art Museum for Adolf Hitler in Linz, Austria. They deserved, but according to the lawyers of the heathen were the prices below the brand value and they had no choice. "Transitive transactions between a Jewish company and representatives of 'n' s are almost impossible." One of the leaders argued.

Events of demolition were rejected

Heirs of art galleries of Gelderse Dieren saw an earlier visit to get 189 works in their hands. In 2013, almost all the requests were rejected by the Restitution Committee, the Dutch government advised on the recovery of art that has been crashed by the Nazi.

Only about a painting by Ferdinand Bol, the man with a whole set, the committee ruled that it was sold to the end of 1941 by force. That was returned. According to the committee, it was unclear that all other works were owned by Katz art dealers, or it was not plausible to sell it under.

"The Dutch have an interest in keeping art works, the US notes only what is good," says the lawyer of the heir.

Eventually, the Katz family left for neutral Switzerland. They had to exchanging family members in exchange for a Rembrandt. She bought this work after the war of the Dutch State.
