German Collector to Keep Nazi-era Art Works Not Stolen From Jews

An estimated 970 of the 1,400 works of art discovered in the apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt were stolen from Jews during the Third Reich.

Works of art that were looted during the Nazi era and confiscated from a German art collector two years ago will be returned to their original owners, while those obtained legally will remain with the collector, the state prosecutor in Augsburg, Germany, said on Tuesday.
