Augsburg state prosecutor Reinhard Nemetz (C) gestures as he and expert art historian Meike Hoffmann (R) from the Berlin Free University address a news conference in Augsburg some 60km (38 miles) west of Munich November 5, 2013. A Jewish group accused Germany on Monday of moral complicity in concealment of stolen paintings after it emerged authorities failed for two years to report discovery of a trove of modern art seized by the Nazis, including works by Picasso and Matisse. Customs officials' chance discovery of 1,500 artworks in a Munich flat owned by Cornelius Gurlitt, the reclusive elderly son of a war-time art dealer, was revealed in a report by news magazine Focus over the weekend. The art works missing for more than 70 years could be worth well over one billion euros. REUTERS/Michael Dalder (GERMANY - Tags: ENTERTAINMENT CRIME LAW POLITICS SOCIETY) less
