"... By the end of the second day, when the looting was finally stopped,
all the pictures were gone.
The loss was quite considerable. It included 259 items of the Schloss
collection, perhaps the finest private collection of Dutch 17th century
paintings, which the Nazis had looted from France, and about the same number
of pictures which had been recently acquired for the
Linz Museum, and which
for lack of transportation had not been shipped for storage to the
Alt Aussee mine."
