Painting looted by Nazis returned to Jewish family after 87 years

Oct 16, 2020 14:00 IST

A painting of two young, 19th-century skaters that was looted by Nazis from a Jewish family in 1933 and recently discovered at a small museum in upstate New York has been returned after 87 years. The painting "Winter" by American artist Gari Melchers was among more than 1,000 pieces of art and artefacts seized from the Mosse family, a prominent Jewish family in Berlin who became early targets of the Nazi Party. It was returned Thursday to family heirs and is expected to go to auction.
