Yearning for restitution

The Weekend Financial Review has a fascinating and disturbing article Shameful legacy of Nazi treasure hoards [Unfortunately, it is behind a paywall. I read the hard copy.]
It concerns the shameful manner in which the German government after WWII dealt with the embarrassing issue of what to do with all the art and wealth that the Nazis had looted from Jews.

A renewed focus on this old and painful issue has been further stimulated by the new Hollywood movie The Monuments Men.

The seriousness of the above trailer (version 2) is an interesting contrast to the frivolous marketing of the main one.
