Melissa Müller and Monika Tatzkow:
"Verlorene Bilder - Verlorene Leben. Jüdische Sammler und was aus ihren Kunstwerken wurde" (Lost pictures – lost life. Jewish collectors and what became of their works of art)
Book presentation with the artists
The Nazi regime dispossessed around 600,000 works of art from Jewish ownership. Since 1945, claimants and heirs have struggled for the restitution of their "lost pictures," often the last tangible memories of their "lost life" during the Nazi regime. In selected biographies, the authors present well-known and forgotten collectors and allow insight into the difficulties of restitution.
