The paintings were found by a structural engineer who was examining the building to see if it could be brought back into use.

As of yet authorities have not been able to establish why these paintings were there or who may have taken them in the first place.
|Evidence of sewer access|
It must be noted that only four of the missing paintings have been found and this represents only a very small portion of the missing collection.
The authorities say that they will be ceasing the paintings as evidence and cannot determine if or when they will be returned to the Kommandantur for display with the rest of the currently unclaimed artwork displayed there.
Fortunately prior to the paintings being confiscated we were able to take these photos of them.
