Lost Art

Module “Provenance Research”

The module “Provenance Research” offers further information on the relocation, storage and confiscation of cultural artifacts between 1933 and 1945. While the information available via the search menu of the Lost Art database rest solely on details provided by private persons and public institutions, which were submitted to the German Lost Art Foundation as lost or found item reports, the content provided in the “Provenance Research” module is generated by means of evaluating primary and secondary sources, as well as specialist literature.

The module “Provenance Research” is divided into the sections


The information found here is continuously expanded and by no means claims to be complete. Here especially, the German Lost Art Foundation relies on the support of Lost Art users and gladly accepts suggestions and criticism.

Information to be published in the module “Provenance Research” can be submitted directly via E-Mail.
