The World Jewish Congress urged a German museum to remove a bust honoring a Nazi art dealer who traded in art looted from Jews. The Augsburg Municipal Art Museum set up the bust of Karl Haberstock near the front entrance because he was one of its biggest donors. The WJC also called on the museum to open its files so researchers can determine whether any of its holdings were looted during the war.
