Maria Altmann and her husband fled their homeland when the Nazi regime came to Austria and threatened their lives. They left their loved ones, their property, and everything that was in it--including their family’s artwork.
Altmann eventually settled in the United States, but did not forget the past that was stolen from her. Several dozens of years later, Altmann had her day in court, and changed everything. Because of her will to reclaim what rightfully belonged to her family, museums worldwide were forced to give back artwork that had been stolen and looted.
This book paints a new picture of how Holocaust survivors rebuilt and reclaimed the lives that were taken from them.
