Seized by the Nazis in 1938 from a Jewish man on the orders of Hitler's Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, then held behind the Iron Curtain in Communist East Berlin, thousands of rare posters are finally back in the hands of collector Hans Sachs' family.
Germany's top federal appeals court is set to rule Friday on whether a Berlin museum must return to a Jewish man from Florida thousands of rare posters that were seized from his father by the Nazis.
"The net result will be that a substantially larger number of the posters from this collection will be on public view than would have been had they remained in the German Historical Museum," Osen said.
Osen said talks are also under way for a possible special exhibition of some of the posters at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp memorial _ the former Nazi camp on the outskirts of Berlin where Sachs' father was briefly held before he fled Germany for the United States.
