Actress Helen Mirren Lends Support to US Bill on Returning Art Stolen by Nazis

British actress Helen Mirren has joined U.S. lawmakers' efforts to return artwork stolen by Nazis during the Holocaust to its rightful owners. Decades after Nazis looted the art mostly from Jews, many valuable pieces remain in art galleries and private collections worldwide. Earlier this year, a group of U.S. senators introduced a bill that would ensure that claims in the United States to Nazi-confiscated art are resolved fairly and quickly. Zlatica Hoke reports.
