Current Questions Regarding the Cultural Looting by the National Socialists in EuropePaperback - 2008
This book examines the means by which the occupied nations of Western Europe were systematically plundered of their art and cultural heritage during World War II. It presents contributions to an international symposium and discuses current issues related to provenance research and restitution. This work is both documentation of en exhibition and an analysis of the response to the exhibition. It focuses on the historical aspects of plundering, the players and interests in provenance research, the legal framework, government commissions, museums, art detectives and auction houses.
