Looted Masterpieces:  
The Ethical Implications of World War II Stolen Art


This lunch seminar will give attendees an overview about art looting during the Second World War and how sales of stolen works bankrolled large parts of the Nazi war machine.  Attendees will also learn about laws that were passed in the wake of the looting, to return stolen art to its rightful owners, and the extent to which those laws have been successful.
