Finding Nazi-Looted Artwork in North American Museums And Collections

This presentation looks at Holocaust-era Provenance Research in North America. Starting in the 1990s, international pressure began building to resolve the issue of Nazi-looted assets, including artworks. In 1998, 44 nations, including Canada, endorsed the Washington Principles, calling on nations to develop legal and regulatory means to address the issue, and on museums to identify and restitute Nazi-looted artworks to their Jewish owners.
