NEW YORK (AP) — A collection of rare posters seized from a Jewish collector by the Nazis is up for auction.

Hans Sachs started collecting posters as a teen and became Germany's leading private collector with 12,500 posters. The Nazis seized the collection in 1938.

His grandson Peter Sachs went through a legal battle for several years to get what was left of the collection back.

Just over 1,200 have been put up for sale at Guernsey's. Details of the three-day auction, which started Friday, weren't available Sunday night.
