In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, Marc Masurovsky, historian and co-founder of the Holocaust Art Restitution Project, returns to the podcast to share his insight on the infamous Gurlitt Nazi looted case developing in Germany and Austria. First, Marc shares his initial reaction to the story as well as what he has heard in regard to the latest developments on this story. Then, given the intense scrutiny Germany has come under for the handling of this investigation, Marc explains how this public spotlight will eventually lead to positive developments in the future for restitution cases. Also, Marc puts the Gurlitt incident in perspective with other restitution cases over the past few decades, claiming it is one of the most significant cases in recent history.
