Polish Instagram Gallery of Looted Art

July 22, 2020

Nicholas O'Donnell was mentioned in the Forbes article, "Polish Instragram Gallery of Looted Art."

The article discusses the gallery of looted art from World War II that was recently posted on Instagram. The author notes that Nick, author of A Tragic Fate: Law and Ethics in the Battle over Nazi-Looted Art, states in his book that, even though the Washington Conference of 1998 commits governments to "fair and equitable" resolution of completing claims to looted art, governments often ignore this moral and ethical standard on the ownership of art and instead raise legal issues that are skewed in their favor to retain or acquire looted art, generally at the expense of the individuals involved.
