BERLIN (AP) -- Germany's top federal appeals court has ruled that a Berlin museum must return to a Jewish man from Florida thousands of rare posters that were seized from his father by the Nazis.
The Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe ruled early Friday that Peter Sachs is the rightful owner of the posters, now believed to be worth between (euro) 4.5 million and (euro) 16 million ($6 million to $21 million), and can demand their return from the German Historical Museum
Sachs has been fighting legal battles for more than five years to have the posters returned.
His attorney Matthias Druba says he hopes Sachs will now be able to find a place for them where they can be better displayed to the public.
