About the lecture:


Join Raymond Dowd, an attorney specializing in copyright litigation and Nazi art looting, for an overview of art theft during the Second World War and a look at how the sale of stolen works bankrolled large parts of the Nazi war machine.  By exploring past and ongoing cases, Mr. Dowd will discuss laws that were passed to address the looting, and will examine the extent to which those laws have been successful in securing the return of stolen art to its rightful owners.
