As I have previously discussed, art collector Cornelius Gurlitt recently died at age 81. Prior to his death a court awarded him returned possession of his hidden art work collection, which he got from his father and is believed to have been stolen from Jewish collectors by Nazis. Now the question of who will inherite the art collection may be answered by the surfacing of a second will by Gurlitt that gives part of the collection to a Swiss museum.
See Mary M. Lane, Art Collector Cornelius Gurlitt Wrote Second Will, The Wall Street Journal, May 13, 2014.
