Provenance Research

Since 2014, more than 5,000 books in the Judaica collections at the University Library in Potsdam have been undergoing an assessment process to determine whether they are loot or trophies from the National Socialist period. Numerous volumes have been identified up to the present. The mostly Hebrew or Yiddish provenance markers are being documented in the Looted Cultural Assets database. The research project is scheduled to conclude in 2018.
