The Recovery of the Nazi Stolen Klimt Paintings from Austria
Randol Schoenberg is a leading American lawyer specializing in cases involving looted art and the recovery of property stolen by the Nazi authorities during the Holocaust. During the past decades, he has litigated several prominent cases, including the Republic of Austria v. Altmann case, in which he sought the return of six famous Klimt paintings to his client, Maria Altmann. Schoenberg is widely known as one of the central figures of the 2015 film Woman in Gold, which depicted the case of Maria Altmann against the government of Austria. In 2007, he received the California Lawyer Attorney of the Year award for outstanding achievement in the field of litigation. He also received the 2006 Jurisprudence Award from the Anti-Defamation League and the Justice Louis D. Brandeis Award from the American Jewish Congress. Randol served as president of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust from 2005 to 2015.
