Nazi Arms And Art

NPR's Emily Harris reports that the city of Berlin has agreed to exhibit a controversial collection of contemporary artworks owned by Friedrich Christian Flick. Flick is a multi-millionaire whose grandfather amassed a fortune selling arms to the Nazis. He lives in Switzerland, but the city of Zurich refused to exhibit his collection because of the Flick family history. (4:15)
