Netherlands Finds Legal Way to Keep Stolen Holocaust Art

The Netherlands has recently developed a legal method for keeping stolen Holocaust art. A special commission decides whether  to keep a work of art which was disowned or had to be sold under pressure during the Holocaust in the museum where it resides or to return it to the original owner’s inheritors. In a number of cases the commission has decided that the Dutch museums can thus keep stolen works of art.
