Monuments Men, Nazi Stolen Art and the FBA

The film The Monuments Men tells the true story of a World War II legion of art experts in military uniform tracking down thousands of masterpiece paintings and statues stolen by Hitler's regime. Despite those valiant efforts, some of Hitler's looted treasures remain unrecovered today.

The Federal Bar Association supports the creation of a commission to address the identification and ownership issues related to artworks unlawfully taken during the Nazi regime but remain unreturned to their rightful owners.

The Federal Bar Association established this position in connection with its 2013-14 Issues Agenda.
