first_imgBERLIN (AP) — A German classical music foundation says it has found the rightful heirs of a Jewish woman who was forced by the Nazis to sell two scores by composer Franz Liszt before being deported to a concentration camp. Klassik Stiftung Weimar said Wednesday that researchers were able to trace relatives of Emma Frankenbacher living in Argentina, where her daughter and son-in-law had fled Nazi persecution in the 1930s. Frankenberger died at 67 in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. She was forced to sell the two handwritten manuscripts to a Liszt museum in 1937. The foundation said it has now reached an agreement with the heirs to buy the scores for the museum. It didn’t disclose the purchase price.last_img
