Summit called to address Nazi-looted art
Published on June 26th, 2009 | by Admin0
Jewish groups and representatives from 49 countries are gathering in Prague to discuss the topic of Nazi-looted art and how to go about returning the stolen items.
The Nazis stole an estimated 650,000 religious items and works of art from European Jews during World War II.
While much of the art been returned, a great deal remains in museums and private collections.
The BBC’s Rob Cameron in Prague says there has often been considerable reluctance on the part of those in possession of the looted art to return it.
