Dispersed into Exile: The Lost "Mosseum"

Their publicly accessible art collection in Mosse-Palais on Leipziger Platz filled twenty rooms: what art interested the important German newspaper publisher Rudolf Mosse and his wife Emilie? In 1934, their treasures were auctioned off under Nazi pressure. The traces of several individual works lead to the United States, Israel, and to Berlin’s Museum Island.
