A special German panel was convening Thursday to hear the case of a Jewish man from Florida seeking the return of a valuable collection of rare posters stolen from his father by the Nazis. Peter Sachs, of Sarasota, was only a year old in 1938 when his father's precious collection of 12,500 posters was seized and his family fled for the United States. Now 69, he is seeking the return of what remains of the collection, some 4,300 posters with an estimated worth between $10 million and $50 millionwhich are in the possession of Berlin's German Historical Museum.
