A shocking new report published by London’s Commission for Looted Art in Europe revealed that after World War II, looted artworks were returned to high-ranking Nazi officials, including Hermann Goring and Martin Bormann, rather than the families they were stolen from. Some works were retained by Bavaria, making their way into a number of state-owned museums. The looted artworks, which were recovered by the Monuments Men, were returned to the country with the understanding that they would be given back to their rightful owners.
