UK To Compensate Family For Nazi-Looted Drawings

The British government is to compensate relatives of a man whose drawings were stolen by the Nazis. The drawings are in the British Museum. “Relatives of Dr Arthur Feldmann are to receive £175,000 after a special panel decided they had ‘firm evidence’ that the works had been seized in 1939. The family says the Old Master drawings can stay in the British Museum. The panel has asked the government to introduce laws permitting the return of objects plundered during the Nazi era.”
