Since 2005, the Shoah Memorial provides victims of spoliations with useful information on compensation. Our homepage guides you through all administrative procedures.
During the anti-Semitic legislation, many damages were caused by spoliation of financial and material assets. The Shoah Memorial offers you detailed information on your rights to reparations, restitution or compensation. This applies also to art works which were stolen in France during the Second World War.
Jews who suffered spoliation because of the anti-Semitic legislation can address their applications for the restitution of their stolen funds to the 'Commission for the compensation of victims of spoliation'. In the last 10 years, this commission has provided 450 million Euros for reparation purposes.
Numerous works of art, including paintings, sculptures and other art objects, were spoliated in France during the Second World War. Jewish owners recognizing their assets in the National Museum of Compiegne Castle can retrieve their possessions.
