Since 1943 America’s art museums have taken a leadership role in the restitution of art and other property stolen by the Nazis. American museums were active partners with the United States Army’s Monuments, Fine Art and Archives section, which succeeded in returning hundreds of thousands of objects to their country of origin in the years immediately following World War II.
