In 2012, over 1,000 artworks confiscated from Jewish and other owners were discovered by police in a Munich apartment belonging to Cornelius Gurlitt, son of an art dealer for the Nazis.
Art historian Vivian Gordon tells the story of this sensational find and shows slides of famous Impressionist paintings that have reemerged after decades of being hidden.
The illustrated talk is open to the public and free of charge; Donations are appreciated.
