So why the comma after "masterpiece," please? Proofread!

Goerring was the art thief/nut, not Hitler so much. Hitler was more into sketches and architecture. I saw Vermeer's "The Milkmaid" at the Met Museum of Art in NYC a few weeks ago, pretty cool.

"Linz, his Bavarian hometown"? Linz is in Austria and Hitler was an Austrian, not Bavarian. Is anybody editing / proof-reading these articles before they are published?

What in the heck does Hitler have to do with this exhibit? Of all the thousands of things that might be said about this collection, what Hitler liked is among the most irrelevant. Lots of people like the Vermeer. I suppose the ST will next inform us that Sebastian Joe's is serving Hitler's favorite flavor of ice cream. Great journalism, not.

Two men were killed as they worked to reclaim the art treasures stolen by the Nazis. One grew up in Minneapolis and was teaching at the U. of Minn. School of Architecture when he enlisted for the Army project. He was killed in Germany, April 1945, at the age of 37 -- Capt. Walter Huchthausen. His father was Rev. Julius Huchthausen, who was co-pastor (with my grandfather, Johannes) of Trinity First Lutheran Church, a bilingual German and English congregation near Franklin and 12th Ave. S. Thank you cousin Walter. RIP.
