If the subject matter is of interest, you may also want to follow the progress of a new bill in the United States Senate that is seeking to form a federal standard for dealing with Holocaust claims across the country. This so-called Holocaust Expropriated Art Recovery (HEAR) Act of 2016 is sponsored across partisan lines by US Senators Ted Cruz (R), John Cornyn (R), Charles Schumer (D), and Richard Blumenthal (D). You can read more about their efforts at the Art Law Report here.
