Can you please change the paragraph below as it contains negative comments about Poland using only german sources.
And this concept of the museum might be fair – but it need to be done in both ways. However Germany still posses much more looted Polish art than Polish have those of German.However from the sentence from the article I got impression that only Poland dont want to cooperate. And the deal must be in both ways. Writing that German national anthem is kept in Poland doesnt show the scale that thousands of Polish paintings, books, maps etc for example of 516 000 Polish pieces of art lost during the war (this is only those registered after the war and focused mostly on historic pieces).

If you need more sources here they are and of course the sources of this article or from Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs,wojenne,17702.html. or

While the Hague Convention of 1907 requires the return of art that had been evacuated, stolen (Nazi plunder) or seized, Poland and Russia (unlike many countries that have cooperated with Germany) refuse to repatriate some of the looted art[5][6], thus e.g. the manuscript of the German national anthem is kept in Poland.

In case of no review of the article some legal actions will be taken.
