A unique piece by Ludwig van Beethoven is finally set to be returned to the heirs of its original owners.

The piece is owned by a family that was the richest in pre-World War II Czechoslovakia, but they had to flee to escape the Holocaust. It's the autograph of the fourth movement of the string quartet in B-flat Major, op. 130, a highly valued late quartet by the German composer.
