A collection of pre-World War II posters that were returned to the heir of a Jewish dentist who fled the Nazis is going on sale. The more than 4,300 posters collected by Hans Sachs and looted by the Nazis will be auctioned at Guernsey's in New York on Jan. 18, though the auction house is seeking to sell the entire collection to one buyer. The posters are worth about $5.8 million, according to Bloomberg.
