A commission investigating Jewish art plundered by the Nazis failed to examine critical data, according to a report in The New York Times. Key members of the Clinton administration’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Holocaust Assets in the United States told the Times on Monday that the panel’s 2000 report, “Plunder and Restitution,” noted that the State Department notified U.S. museums about looted art as early as 1946, but did not follow up to see how they responded.
