520    Bruno Lohse (1911-2007) was one of the most notorious art 
       plunderers in history. Appointed by Hermann Göring to 
       Hitler's art looting agency in Paris, he went on to help 
       supervise the systematic theft and distribution of more 
       than thirty thousand artworks, taken largely from French 
       Jews, and to assist Göring in amassing an enormous private
       art collection. By the 1950s Lohse was officially 
       denazified but was back in the art dealing world, offering
       masterpieces of dubious origin to American museums. After 
       his death, dozens of paintings by Renoir, Monet, and 
       Pissarro, among others, were found in his Zurich bank 
       vault and adorning the walls of his Munich home. Jonathan 
       Petropoulos spent nearly a decade interviewing Lohse and 
       continues to serve as an expert witness for Holocaust 
       restitution cases.
