Definitely A Can of ‘Elite’ Worms Germany Didn’t Want to Open!

germany-art-foundThe true extent of Nazi murders and thieveries have just come to the surface this century. Earlier this year, researchers discovered some 40,000 previously unknown slave and death camps Nazis had built throughout Europe.  Now German police have ‘stumbled’ upon stolen Nazi art work worth $ 1.35 billion dollars.

In ‘The Holocaust Just Got More Shocking,’ Eric Lichtblau reported last March on discoveries led by Drs. Megargee and Dean for the Holocaust Memorial Museum:  “When the research began in 2000, [they] expected to find “ . . .perhaps 7,000 Nazi camps and ghettos, based on postwar estimates. But the numbers kept climbing — first to 11,500, then 20,000, then 30,000, and now 42,500.”

“The numbers astound,” they told Lichtblau: “30,000 slave labor camps; 1,150 Jewish ghettos; 980 concentration camps; 1,000 prisoner-of-war camps; 500 brothels filled with sex slaves; and thousands of other camps used for euthanizing the elderly and infirm, performing forced abortions, “Germanizing” prisoners or transporting victims to killing centers.”

Moreover, they conclude these numbers mean Germans and other Europeans can no longer deny they knew of the slaughters. Too much ‘truth’ was all around them.  Now, supposedly to the ‘shock’ and ‘horror’ of the German government and international art world: valuable art works stolen by Nazis 70 years ago is found.

However, German officials waited two years before releasing news about this ‘find’ to the public, and only did so after ‘Focus,’ a German news magazine, exposed this week that the German government was secretly holding 1,400 priceless works of works. Now that government has only released information on some art pieces, insisting that potential families should contact them first.

Anger over Germany’s reluctance to fully confirm the collection has exploded.  Multiple lawyers representing heirs, Hitler Shows Off "Purged Art"International Jewish organizations and the United States demands that Germany release the full list of items and begins to search for estates of rightful owners.

The paintings, held in a junky apartment leased by 80 year old Cornelius Gurlitt, were left to him by his father, art collector Hildebrand Gurlitt, who either stole and stashed the works for Hitler’s minions, or purchased them for a pittance from Jewish art dealers and collectors trying to flee Germany.

Police only came upon Gurlitt in September of 2010, when he was traveling by train from Switzerland to Munich, carrying $ 12,000 in 500 euro notes. Since it is illegal to travel with more than 10,000 euros, they decided to investigate him further, thus finding sketches, oil paintings, charcoals, lithographs and watercolors strewn around his apartment amidst boxes of canned foods, and other crates of junk.  He had just returned from selling one painting for $ 1.2 million dollars.

The find has opened a can of worms for German laws and courts, because politicians never passed a law saying that individuals could not hold onto Nazi art work, only companies. Thus it is still not clear if Germany can even return items to rightful owners.  And what about the art dealers and auctioneers who helped Gurlitt sell off these items, knowing full well they were definitely stolen?

This sounds like plots from Nero Wolfe novels by Rex Stout. As God exposes more about Nazi thefts, murders and lies, perhaps the truth about the billions in gold Nazis carted off to Swiss banks will also come to light.  As The LORD Jesus promises: “Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known (Matthew 10: 26).”
