A Jewish art dealer handed over his collection of Picassos and other artworks to Germany for a fraction of their worth. Heinz Berggruen, 86, escaped Hitler’s death camps by fleeing his native Berlin in 1936, later becoming a successful art dealer in Paris after the war. In an act of reconciliation with the country he once fled, he turned over the works for $115 million.
