Several German cultural institutions and the American heirs of a German-Jewish family Wednesday presented the first results of their joint efforts to restitute a vast art collection stolen by the Nazis.Berlin's state museums found in their collections nine artworks the Nazis took from the family of Berlin newspaper publisher Rudolf Mosse, and returned them to Mosse's heirs. The museums have since bought three of the pieces, including the marble sculpture "Susanna" by artist Reinhold Begas.Other German museums and research institutions are involved in the huge effort to identify and return over 1,000 pieces of art that are believed to have been stolen from Mosse's family, a project called the Mosse Art Research Initiative.
