Nicholas O'Donnell was quoted in the article, "The Lost Maidens of Berlin," which was published in the June 2018 issue of Smithsonian Magazine.

In the article, Nick comments that groups dedicated to identifying and restituting artworks seized by the Nazis, such as MARI (Mosse Art Research Initiative), are a product of a "domino line" of developments: the emergence of the Internet; Germany’s increased willingness to reckon with Nazi crimes; and a growing international consensus that museums, galleries and private collectors possessed far more looted art than was generally acknowledged.
