Date 2016.04.15

On 14 April the Ger­man Lost Art Foun­da­tion host­ed a meet­ing to dis­cuss is­sues re­lat­ed to the war-re­lat­ed re­moval of cul­tur­al as­sets ("loot­ed prop­er­ty"). The meet­ing was at­tend­ed by staff and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of var­i­ous in­sti­tu­tions which have ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in this area. One of the new tasks of the Foun­da­tion is to sup­port ef­forts in this field of re­search. The meet­ing, head­ed by Uwe M. Schneede, chair­man of the Foun­da­tion’s Ex­ec­u­tive Board, large­ly fo­cused on pos­si­ble re­search projects and co­op­er­a­tive part­ner­ships. The par­tic­i­pants formed var­i­ous work­ing groups which will meet again in the com­ing months to in­ten­sive­ly dis­cuss cul­tur­al as­sets re­port­ed lost by Ger­man, Rus­sian and Ukraini­an au­thor­i­ties.
