According to Julius Schoeps, director of the Moses Mendelssohn Center, Germany has 6,000 museums, only 350 of which have done provenance research on their collections. "The process of returning works should be expedited," he said.

"Thanks to these developments, I believe there is a good chance for the emergence of a new German Jewry," says the historian Julius H. Schoeps, head of the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies in Potsdam by Berlin. He describes the quintessential Jewish immigrant in Germany as "a mathematician from, say, St. Petersburg."

Julius Schoeps, a leading German Jewish intellectual, argued that it would be better to cut off the Gemeinde's government subsidy and force a complete makeover from the bottom up.
"The state gives the Gemeinde too much money," Schoeps said during an interview at his office in Potsdam. "After 1945, German politicians needed Jews here as a sign that the new Germany is a democracy. Therefore they gave money, money, money."
Schoeps said he has friends in the Berlin Senate who describe the situation at the Gemeinde as "horrible. Still, he said, they will not cut the subsidy, because such action would be seen as anti-Semitic.
"I left the community because of people like Joffe," said Schoeps, who is the director of the Moses-Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies and professor emeritus of German-Jewish history at Potsdam University.
Schoeps described a staggering cultural cleavage between the community's Russian majority and the smattering of remaining German and Polish Jews. They have different memories, different histories, different traditions, he said.
Jews raised in the Soviet Union were accustomed to a pervasive government presence that smothered personal initiative. They had no background in civic democracy and were accustomed to a culture in which people often used unsavory means to circumvent the system.
"It was the antithesis of the competitive German society," said Schoeps.

The two institutions said they took the step to fend off an expected lawsuit from Julius H. Schoeps, a German who has been waging a legal fight to recover artwork and property once owned by his great uncle.
Schoeps demanded on Nov. 1 that the museums hand over both works, "Boy Leading a Horse," which is in MoMA's collection, and "Le Moulin de la Galette," in the Guggenheim's collection.
"Evidence from our extensive research makes clear the museums' ownership of these works and also makes clear that Mr. Schoeps has no basis for his claim."
At the time of his death, Mendelssohn-Bartholdy had been engaged in a series of manoeuvres that Schoeps said were intended to protect his estate and an incredible art collection that also included nine paintings by Vincent van Gogh.
In a recent lawsuit involving a third Picasso, Schoeps argued that his great uncle only parted with the paintings because he expected his estate to be plundered by the Nazis.
An identical claim was tossed last month by a state judge in New York, who said Schoeps hadn't yet taken the proper legal steps to have himself declared the rightful heir to the Mendelssohn-Bartholdy estate.
Christie's auction house predicted the painting, also known as "The Absinthe Drinker," could sell for $60 million.
Schoeps is the director of the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies at the University of Potsdam.
Over the years, he has also battled to recover the family's country estate in Brandenburg, which remained in the hands of his great uncle's Christian wife for most of the war, only to be seized by the advancing Soviet army.
