In 1998, Egon Schiele’s "Dead City" made worldwide headlines when New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau seized the painting at the Museum of Modern Art. It originally belonged to the Jewish cabaret artist and film star Fritz Grünbaum. When the Germans invaded Austria in 1938, Grünbaum was imprisoned in Dachau where he died in 1941. Attorney Raymond J. Dowd reveals how Nazi agents laundered stolen art through Switzerland and tells a story of art, murder and betrayal.
The presentation took place at the Jewish Museum Berlin on 18 May 2009 at 7.30pm. For further details, click here.
