Congressional Democrats are pushing for a Hearing on assets looted during the Nazi era now owned by American individuals and institutions, focusing in particular on artwork that may now be part of museum collections.

All 32 Democrats on the Financial Services Committee wrote earlier this month to the Chairwoman of the subcommittee on domestic and international policy, Rep. Deborah Pryce
(R-Ohio), asking for a review of the work of a presidential advisory commission that produced a report in 2000 on the fate of Holocaust-era
assets in U.S. custody.
