    NEW YORK -
    A federal appeals court in New York has given new life to a claim that the University of Oklahoma is harboring a Camille Pissarro painting stolen by the Nazis during World War II.

    The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has directed a lower-court judge to consider whether the lawsuit she tossed out should be transferred to Oklahoma.

    Holocaust survivor Leone Meyer's lawsuit alleges Pissarro's 1886 "Shepherdess Bringing in Sheep" was taken by the Nazis when German forces moved across France.

    Swiss records show Meyer's father in Paris had owned the painting. But a Swiss court ruled that the painting's post-war owners had properly established ownership and rejected her claim.

    Bequeathed to OU by an oil tycoon's wife, the school displayed it publicly for over a decade.

    that was only 70 yeas ago, I bet the holocaust will live on as long or longer than the whining about slavery(175 years and counting) and reparations.

    Sounds like a jury of her oppressors ruled non-human Jews cannot possess objects because they themselves are objects?
