Lost paintings at the Israel Museumby michael • February 21 2008
Things to do
Not only was the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews the most terrible and most brutally effective genocide the world has ever witnessed, it was also the greatest art theft of all time. Nazi forces enthusiastically looted the art-bedecked homes of cultured European Jews, and even after more than sixty years, many of the stolen paintings have never been returned to their owners or their owners' descendants. So it seems fitting that those unclaimed paintings would find their way to the Jewish state, where a great number of them are currently on display at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
Jerusalemite highly recommends taking advantage of this rare opportunity to see fine art and recent history intersect.
