New web portal for recovery of Nazi-era cultural property

by

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of several archival institutions and the Holocaust International Resources, a new web portal designed to assist the public access records and information debuted last week. The International Research Portal consolidates access to several collections, among them the Bundesarchiv, the Commission for Looted Art and the US National Archives and Records Administration, linking “researchers to archival material consisting of descriptions of records and, in many cases, digital images of the records that relate to cultural property that was stolen, looted, seized, forcibly sold, or otherwise lost during the Nazi-era.” The property documented ranges from artworks, religious objects, archival documents and libraries.
