Recently, Joram Deutsch discovers that a painting by El Greco in New York’s Metropolitan Museum was originally stolen by the Nazis during World War II. How it got there is one of the biggest conspiracy stories of the post-WWII era. In November 1964, Dr. Hans Deutsch, a Jewish lawyer, was arrested in the German Ministry of Finance in Bonn, under accusation of attempted governmental fraud and forgery. He was representing clients whose art collections had been stolen by the Nazi regime. Thus, Deutsch himself became the victim of betrayal and conspiracy at the hands of the former Nazi Rolf Dahlgrün, who was Minister of Finance in 1964. He together with former Nazis in Germany, Switzerland and Austria succeeded in discrediting and ruining the era’s most important reparations lawyer. Could the discovery of the El Greco painting be the key to the puzzle? Will Deutsch’s son Joram be able to expose the complex web of intrigue behind it? We follow Joram Deutsch and maverick lawyer Ed Fagan on the trail of a spectacular political detective story.
