Art looting during World War II helped bankroll the Nazi war machine. In December 2016, Congress passed a law to help return Nazi-looted art to its true owners. Attorney Ray Dowd brought the only Nazi-looted art case to trial in a U.S. court since the Allied victory in 1945. In an entertaining, image-packed presentation, he tells the dark story of Hitler’s beneficiaries and why in 2017 the world’s museums and private art collectors are still fighting to hold on to the spoils of war.
