  Restitution Cases  

Many restitutions cases have been successfully resolved between claimants and current owners of works of art looted or sold under duress during World War II. There has been particular success since the 1998 Washington Conference on Holocaust Era Assets. The Washington Conference Principles on Nazi-Confiscated Art have helped aid in the restitution process.


The Monuments Men and Women Foundation hopes that claimants and current owners - whether museums or private individuals - will continue to seek just and fair solutions to ongoing restitution issues.
