The theft of art by the Third Reich was central to its plans and not an afterthought. The restitution of art looted by the Nazis was first organized by the U.S. Army, and later by the West German and then the German government. Since 2011, the Mosse Art Restitution Project (MARP) has undertaken to identify, locate and restitute the Mosse Family Art Collection, which was looted by the Third Reich in 1933. This project entails physical investigative work, the use of U.S. diplomatic contacts to apply political pressure, and negotiations with current holders of Mosse Family Art.
Join Cardozo Society for a fascinating discussion with J. Eric Bartko, Director of Investigations at the law firm of Bartko, Zankel, Bunzel & Miller, who manages MARP and will speak about the project.
Admission is free. A light lunch will be provided.
