Alfred Flechtheim, who was persecuted by the Nazis as a Jew and dealer in "degenerate" art, fled Germany in 1933. His heir is pursuing hundreds of artworks in museums around the world. He was one of many Jewish art dealers in Germany who fled first to Switzerland. He later went on to Paris and then London, where he spent the rest of his life.
