Hitler stole over 750,000 artworks during the war

It has been estimated that the years between 1933 and 1945 are a black hole in the art community, with thousands of pieces of art changing hands and going missing.

During World War II, the Nazis went on a rampage destroying and stealing European art.  Priceless pieces of art were auctioned off at extremely low prices.  This has created a major problem in the art community that remains evident today.  People purchased stolen art and the victim’s families want their possessions back.  In many cases, proving the legal rights to a piece of art is a difficult and time consuming process.  This article will be examining 10 famous pieces of art that were stolen by the Nazis.
