FBI agents from the San Francisco Field Office returned 75 lost paintings that are considered cultural artifacts and national treasures to Poland’s Ministry of Culture yesterday.

“The FBI is proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our Polish counterparts in ensuring safe passage of these lost national treasures,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge David J. Johnson of the San Francisco Field Office. “Preserving our past is priceless, and we were honored to be a part of this quest to get these paintings finally home.”
