May-29 8.30pm SBS-Viceland: Hitler’s Museum of Lost Art

Read on for article

The search of a flat in Munich in 2012, owned by elderly recluse Cornelius Gurlitt, uncovers one of the most extraordinary stashes of lost art ever discovered.

It reveals how Gurlitt’s part-Jewish father, Hildebrand, struck a deal with the devil – and became an art dealer for Adolf Hitler. Gurlitt was part of a Nazi looting campaign that saw one in five art objects in Europe stolen. How do museums and collectors today justify holding onto art stolen from Jewish families murdered in the Holocaust?
