The Scottish government has opened an inquiry to find out whether a chandelier hanging in the first minister’s official residence was looted by the Nazis.
According to official records, the chandelier, which hangs in the drawing room of Bute House in Edinburgh, was found abandoned in a street in northern Germany in 1945 by English decorator Felix Harbord.
It seemed not long ago that the shutters were about to come down on what was probably the world's strangest family business. A firm that could have been listed in trade directories as "Nazi hunters". But the doors are still open. In Paris today the Klarsfeld family, mother, father and son, are as active as ever.
