About 80% of the city and Germans have still not returned many Polish historical artefacts that they stole.

I had a chat with one expert in this field, and she reckons that a large amount of it ended up in the USA after the war. It seems to be backed up by the way that stuff keeps appearing for auction over there...

Hmm, the reason might be different - the robbed items surface in American auctions more frequently coz owners are not aware of the origin of what they want to sell. In Europe it might be different - owners keep their dubious belongings to themselves and rarely show them to public in fear of consequences.
