'During a war”, Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering informed his interrogators at Nuremberg, “everybody loots a little bit.” It was a statement so preposterously self-serving as to be darkly comic. Goering had profited from perhaps the greatest organised art theft in modern history, one that continued for years and was supervised by an agency of the German state, and removed colossal quantities of paintings, sculptures and other items from occupied Europe (26,000 railway wagons of it from France alone). Yet more was snatched from museums and collections in Germany itself.

I hate to plug my own threads. The circumstances around the man who was holding them is odd, so was his lifestyle leading up to his old age, and how the art was stored.
