For those of you who read my post about art dealer Alfred Flechtheim yesterday, here is a link to the Spiegel article that is now available in English.
This article should cause great consternation among the members of the American Association of Art Museum Directors, the folks largely responsible for the trafficking the United States in art stolen from Jews. Next time you go to a museum, ask where they got that beautiful Picasso and who owned it in 1932. If the museum can't or won't answer, they are probably lying to you.
Many more posts here on Alfred Flechtheim the man whom the Nazi chose to symbolize international Jewry and the man that MoMA and other museums are trying to write out of history.
