BBC News – ‘Nazi art’ hoarder Cornelius Gurlitt left will, lawyer confirms

German art hoarder Cornelius Gurlitt wrote a will shortly before his death on Tuesday aged 81, his lawyer says.

He did not elaborate on the contents, but it could affect what happens to Mr Gurlitt’s vast, secret collection of art, including many Nazi-looted pieces.

Unconfirmed German media reports say he is leaving the hoard – worth up to a billion euros – to a foreign museum, possibly in Austria or Switzerland.
