Date 2016.03.01

Last week the Main-Post re­port­ed on a project by the Mu­se­um im Kul­tur­spe­ich­er in Würzburg. Since last Novem­ber, the mu­se­um has been sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly in­ves­ti­gat­ing its col­lec­tions in search of art­works seized through Nazi per­se­cu­tion, par­tic­u­lar­ly those ac­quired be­tween 1941 and 1945. The Ger­man Lost Art Foun­da­tion has al­lo­cat­ed 150,000 eu­ros in fund­ing to fi­nance the project for a pe­ri­od of 24 months.
