The regional government of Salzburg has announced the restitution of Gustav Klimt's Litzlburg am Attersee. It was acquired in 1941. From Bloomberg:

The 1915 picture belonged to Amalie Redlich until she was deported to Poland in 1941 and murdered. The Gestapo cleared her apartment after her forced departure. The painting will now return to her grandson and heir, Georges Jorisch, Salzburg said.
