Ahead Of MoMA Exhibit, Art Collector Claims 'The Scream' Has Nazi History

Already under fire by heirs of Jews whose art was stolen, the Museum of Modern Art plans to display what one man claims is the Nazi's most famous grab -- "The Scream."

MoMA will unveil an exhibit of the Edvard Munch masterpiece next week. But relatives of German-Jewish banker Hugo Simon, who owned the work in the 1920s and '30s, came forward before a Sotheby's auction this spring to contest its sale, and they say it's wrong for the museum to display it without at least explaining its tragic history.
