A painting stolen by Nazis 70 years ago is back home with the rightful owners.
The Italian painting, Christ carrying the cross dragged by a Rogue, is almost five hundred years old.
It was stolen from a Jewish man in France when he fled the country to escape the Nazi Concentration Camps.
He later died, but his family discovered the painting hanging in a museum in Tallahassee last year.
The feds were contacted.
Susan Mccormick with the department of homeland security helped get the painting to the man's family.
"Today we right a wrong that was perpetrated more than 70 years ago by returning this particular art work."
The family didn't travel to Tallahassee to pick up the painting.
Instead they are having it shipped to New York to be sold at an auction June 6th.
It's insured for 2.3 million dollars, but it might be worth a lot more.
