Lost Art Database
The Lost Art Database documents cultural property expropriated as a result of Nazi persecution, especially from Jewish owners, between 1933 and 1945 (“Nazi-looted art”), or for which such a loss cannot be ruled out. With the help of the publication of so-called Search Requests and Found-Object Reports, former owners or their heirs are to be brought together with current owners and thus support all stakeholders in finding a just and fair solution.
The Lost Art Database also contains reports on cultural property that was removed as a result of the Second World War ("wartime losses"). Their publication is intended to support solutions in accordance with international law. The Lost Art Database is accessible worldwide free of charge.
