German officials returned a van Gogh drawing to the heir of a Jewish collector forced by the Nazis to sell his art holdings at a fraction of their value. The drawing, “Olive Trees,” has been in Berlin museums since 1935, when owner Max Silberberg was forced to auction off his collection, which has been valued at $60 million at today’s prices.
