The fact that no Jewish expert was appointed is "an unprecedented scandal," Julius Schoeps, founding director of the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European Jewish Studies in Potsdam, said in the statement.
The Interior Ministry established the commission in August 2009 with rotating membership following a Bundestag resolution the previous year.
The new set of eight experts, including scholars and educators, met for the first time on Jan. 19.
Schoeps, the only Jewish member of the original panel, said the parliament and interior minister should have to explain why they apparently did not consider it valuable this time to include experts and advisers of Jewish background, or representatives from Jewish organizations and communities.

Julius H. Schoeps, a historian at the University of Potsdam, claims that the Picasso, Boy with a Pipe, 1904, was sold in 1949 despite his great-uncle's will stating that he wished the painting to remain in the Berlin family.He is arguing that the provisions of his great-uncle's will, which was made in 1935 with the aim of keeping the painting, among others, out of Nazi hands, were morally breached by the subsequent sale of the Picasso, which he describes as a "betrayal" of his family.The Telegraph
