Abstract:

A survey of the Nazi plundering of art collections in Europe, mostly belonging to Jews. These robberies were carefully planned by the Nazis and the plunder was distributed among the leaders, especially Hermann Göring who was a passionate art collector. The chapters are arranged according to countries: Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, France, Netherlands, USSR, South-East Europe, and Italy. A trusteeship instituted by the U.S. occupation forces returned about 49,000 items of art to the respective countries; another 13,000 (probably the property of German Jews who perished during the Holocaust) were left in Germany. A few thousands of plundered art items are still missing.
