screen-shot-2016-11-12-at-22-01-43The Removal of cultural goods in the Soviet Zone and the GDR – The state of research and prospects

21 November, 2016, Magdeburg

The tasks of the German Center for Cultural Heritage include, in addition to the primary research on looted art during the Nazi period, to encourage essential research into the expropriations in the Soviet Zone of Occupation (SBZ) and in the GDR.

The purpose of the conference is to summarise the present knowledge in museums, libraries and archives, to capture the role of the GDR’s state trade in art, and to develop perspectives for future research projects. This conference is not about questions of restitution, but about the necessary basic explorations.

Currently there no vacancies, however there is a waiting list.
