To mark the 20th an­niver­sary of the adop­tion of the Wash­ing­ton Prin­ci­ples, the Ger­man Lost Art Foun­da­tion is con­ven­ing an in­ter­na­tion­al con­fer­ence of spe­cial­ists, 20 Years Wash­ing­ton Prin­ci­ples: Roadmap for the Fu­ture, at the “Haus der Kul­turen der Welt” in Berlin from Novem­ber 26 to 28, 2018. Pre­cise­ly twen­ty years af­ter 44 na­tions and nu­mer­ous NGOs agreed up­on the “Wash­ing­ton Prin­ci­ples on Nazi-Con­fis­cat­ed Art,” renowned ex­perts will as­sess progress-to-date, dis­cuss chal­lenges in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Wash­ing­ton Prin­ci­ples, and iden­ti­fy new tasks for the fu­ture. The spec­trum of just and fair so­lu­tions will be a fo­cal point. An­oth­er will be the ques­tion of how to im­part and hand on to fol­low­ing gen­er­a­tions the con­cerns of the Wash­ing­ton Prin­ci­ples, with the goal of per­ma­nent­ly and con­tin­u­ous­ly in­te­grat­ing the Prin­ci­ples in­to a cul­ture of re­spon­si­bil­i­ty and re­mem­brance.
