1500 masterworks stolen by Nazis found in a Munich Apartment

Don't know if its hit the English papers yet.  The paintings are by important modern masters such as Picasso, Max Beckmann and Max Liebermann and may be worth 1 billion or more.  They were among the "degenerate" art the Nazis confiscated and either destroyed or sold abroad, and were in the apartment of one of the men who was charged with doing so....

Yesterday I saw a documentary about Anna Mae Wong and there was some coverage of her time in Berlin.  I am always always amazed when I think about Weimar Berlin as one of the most modern, creative and sophisticated cities in the world, and how it all went to hell soon afterwards....

I saw this picture by Alfred Eisenstaedt I'd never seen before: of Marlene Dietrich, Wong and Leni Riefenstahl in 1928.

Leading part off am news, I hope they have been catalogued , its great news for the relatives off those who had to stand by and watch the scum tear them off there beautiful walls. I would off joined the Police if I could work in this dept.

Also their could be some sweating going on if surprise surprise another identical Picasso that is hanging in x is now found in this hoard. Guess thats one off the reasons it was kept quite for 2 years . Good job it was not the UK police they,d off sold the info to the nearest journalist .

Are they showing any off the actual Pictures Mecch ?

The awful thing was both where happening at the same time as  Weimar Berlin was doing its thing National Socialism was growing. In many ways Party life blinded those involved to the ever creeping menace.

However its my first choice in the go backward time machine.
