Spotlight: Commission for Art Recovery (NY)

The Commission for Art Recovery is a non-profit organization which seeks justice for Holocaust victims of Nazi art theft. It encourages provenance research for works of art whose ownership histories show gaps in the years between 1933 and 1945.

The Commission also supports events that highlight restitution efforts  and strive to facilitate policy changes internationally.  In 2011, the Commission will co-sponsor the Restitution Conference at Cardozo.
The Commission maintains a website to documents various pilot restitution cases and summarize important conferences dedicated to the topic of Nazi-looted art and its recovery efforts.
