The contact for the restitution of works that have been classified as Nazi-confiscated property is the Federal government. The research results of the Gurlitt Provenance Research Project form the basis for a restitution decision that is to be made by the respective owner. Classification of the works as Nazi-confiscated property is governed by the German version of the Washington Principles on the basis of the Joint Declaration.
Contact details for restitution claims and information on the required documents in the case of a potential restitution can be found here.
