Further provenance research training for museum volunteers from Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt
Last week, the German Lost Art Foundation organized further training at the Kulturhistorisches Museum Magdeburg for volunteers from museums in Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.
Various employees from the Foundation reported in detail on provenance research tasks and current challenges. They also provided information to the volunteers on how initial suspicions could be determined with regard to Nazi-confiscated property in museum holdings and what databases could be used for the work in addition to the publicly accessible Lost Art Database operated by the Foundation. Last but not least, findings from the various initial check projects and the Gurlitt Provenance Research project also played a key role in the further training.
