For over five years, the Shoah Memorial gives those who became victims of spoliations in France during the Second World War advice on their rights to reparation.
It is often complicated to get details on available compensation for Jewish victims in France whose assets have been stolen during World War II. In the section 'Victims of spoliations' you will find everything you need to know about the restitution of art works, bank-related spoliation and different forms of compensation.
After the Jewish Genocide, many associations worked on compensations for Holocaust victims. The 'Commission for the compensation of victims of spoliation' has been taking care of returning stolen Jewish funds, bank accounts, spoliated artwork, etc. to their owners. On our website, you can find more details on this issue.
An illustrated catalogue published by the Management of French Museums is supposed to help victims of spoliation to get back artwork that was spoliated by Nazi Germany. Thus, requests for restitution and compensation can be handled more easily.
