Summary"The remarkable story of an 84 year old Los Angeles woman's struggle to recover five rare paintings that were stolen from her family by the Nazis in 1938. The artworks were painted by world renowned Austrian artist, Gustav Klimt. For nearly a decade, Maria Altmann and her lawyer, Randol Schoenberg, battled Austria for the return of these incredibly valuable paintings. Although it began as a legal dispute, the struggle quickly turned into a political, cultural and ethical confrontation. In the process, Austria was forced to re-examine not only its role in Nazi art thefts, but also its anti-Semitic past." --Container
