Copyright Society of the USA-Rocky Mountain Chapter presents: Nazi Looted Art Event

On April 12, 2018, (Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day), the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the Copyright Society of the USA, for which our attorney, Shirin Chahal, serves as a co-chair, hosted NYC-based attorney Raymond J. Dowd and University of Denver Professor Elizabeth Campbell for a fascinating presentation on how artwork stolen during WWII bankrolled the Nazi war machine, and legal efforts since WWII to return this artwork to heirs of Holocaust victims.

The timing of the event could not have been better, as Mr. Dowd had secured that very same week a major legal victory involving the artworks of Austrian painter Egon Schiele. You can read more about that here: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-43665737.

Some photos from the memorable evening are here:
