    Here is more information on the Gothic Treasure of Zamosc here (in Polish):

    http://www.mpov.uw.edu.pl/pl/thesaurus/stanowiska/zamosc-


    The treasure was found in 1839 in Zamosc, Poland (at that time part of the Russian Empire).



    As for the "case closed" part, Russia returned during the 1990's old treasures to such countries like Germany and Hungary.

    Meanwhile Germany is not returning anything to Poland. Is this fair?

    What has fair to do with it?

    the British museum has lots of treasures from around the world that it refuses to return because it claims only it can look after them properly... Rolling Eyes

    The lesson is that if you steal something, just put it in a nice display case and you wont have to give it back...

    Perfect example of this is the Elgin Marbles dispute between Greece and the UK.
