Exhibition reveals lost stories of works of Nazi looted art

The Jewish Museum is presenting Afterlives: Recovering the Lost Stories of Looted Art, an exhibition that situates the subject of art looting during World War II within a unique thematic premise, focusing on the seizure and movement of works as they traveled through distribution centers, sites of recovery, and networks of collectors, before, during, and after the war. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings, and Judaica that survived this traumatic period of violence and upheaval against tremendous odds. By tracing the fascinating timelines of individual objects as they passed through hands and sites, their myriad stories have been brought forward, often in dialogue with archival documents and photographs that connect them to history. The exhibition is on view from August 20, 2021 through January 9, 2022. During World War II untold numbers of artworks and pieces of cultural property were stolen by Nazi forces. After the war
