MORE ON GURLITT-THE ISRAELI RESPONSE-WILL THE GERMANS HAVE ANY MORALS?

Deputy Foreign Minister Ze’ev Elkin (Likud-Yisrael Beytenu) has urged Germany to give any Jewish-owned art from a trove discovered in Munich to Jewish or Israeli museums if heirs are not found.

According to a report on Monday in the Israel Hayom daily, Elkin said Israel has requested to join the German investigation into artworks found in the apartment of a reclusive Munich collector last year.

 

German authorities recently said they would order the return of several of the paintings in the trove to Gurlitt, saying that some of the works confiscated from his home clearly belonged to him.

That decision was blasted by the leader of Germany’s Jewish community, Dieter Graumann, who said the aim by prosecutors to give back some 300 works was an “irresponsible choice.”
