for forthcoming uk programmes of jewish or israeli interest

tomorrow evening (tuesday 28th), 10.35-11.55pm, on bbc 1
winter 2014 (1st of 2 episodes of the art that hitler hated) presented by alan yentob (part of the imagine… series)

“On a train crossing from Switzerland to Germany, an old man was searched by customs officials. They found 9,000 euros in cash. Their suspicions started a journey back in time, to a hoard of art hidden since the Third Reich. It has reignited passions that seemed long spent.
These were not old masters but new – works the Nazis labelled ‘degenerate’, like the Jews themselves. They tried to wipe out both. The father of the old man on the train was a dealer for the Nazis, selling these works abroad and keeping some for himself.
In a two-part special, imagine… follows both his story and those of the families who have been fighting to find their lost art.”
