Helen Mirren Supports Bill To Recover Artwork Stolen By The Nazis

Helen Mirren raises her hand to testify during a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearing held at Capitol Hill on Tuesday (June 7) in Washington, D.C.

The 70-year-old actress is lending her support to the Holocaust Expropriated Art Recovery Act, and reuniting victims with their lost heritage.

“When the Jewish people were dispossessed of their art, they lost some of their heritage,” Helen expressed. “Memories were taken along with the art, and to have no memories is like having no family, and that is why art restitution is so imperative.”

“The very act of Nazi expropriation was not only unjust but it was inhumane,” Helen added. “And yet, still today, it seems there are still some out there who lack the will to recognize the victims and their families as rightful owners.”

If you didn’t know, Helen starred in the 2015 film Woman in Gold, where she played a Jewish refugee fighting to recover artwork she believed belonged to her family.

    Too bad that those pieces of arts often were taken from the Nazis by Soviets.

    Woman in Gold is a good film. It’s terrible what all was stolen, even lives.
