Poster looted by Nazis to be given to Jewish heir





A German court ruled Tuesday that a Jewish man from Florida is the rightful owner of a rare poster the Gestapo seized from his father in 1938.

The ruling set the stage for the return of the entire collection of thousands of posters taken by the Nazis, which are now worth at least euro4.5 million ($5.85 million).

The Berlin administrative court ruled that Hans Sachs never gave up ownership of the collection of 12,500 posters taken from his home on the orders of Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels.
