Hitler's Lost Art

I never knew there was actually a Bohemia. According to Wikipedia it's a historical region in central Europe, occupying the western two-thirds of the traditional Czech Lands. And here I thought "bohemian" was a term to describe colorful, exotic, flamboyant items I'm generally drawn to. Or perhaps a description one might use for a nomad or adventurer. Regardless, several pieces of long lost art originally ordered to be hidden in Southern Bohemia by Adolf Hitler has shown up in northern Czechoslovakia. There are rumored to be another nine pieces still missing. The convent in which the pieces were found has decided to stake claim. We'll see how that works out for them.
