NYU Skirball, in collaboration with the American Friends of Bucerius and Deutsches Haus at New York University, presented a panel discussion given by scholars and experts in the field of Art, Law, and History. They shared their perspectives and insights into the world of stolen art in Europe during the two World Wars, and the continuing efforts of lawyers and preservationists to recover and repatriate missing works. This event took place on Friday, March 27, 2015.
