Stolen Czech Jewish art to be returned

The Jewish Museum in Prague is ready to return a valuable art collection stolen during the Nazi occupation to the American relatives of its former owner, but the Americans will not be able to take some of the art out of the country, officials said Wednesday.
The collection of 32 paintings and drawings belonged to Emil Freund, a Jewish lawyer who was deported in 1941 from Prague to the Jewish ghetto in Lodz, Poland. He died there the following year. (AP)
