Commission for Art Recovery

The Commission for Art Recovery was established in 1997 to spur efforts to restitute art that was seized, confiscated, or otherwise wrongfully taken during the war.  The Commission advocates for and assists with the international institution of changes in policy regarding looted art.  It stresses the importance of identifying works of art with gaps in ownership during the period of 1933-1945 and then making that information publicly available so that claimants may search for works taken from their families during the war.

For the Commission for Art Recovery, Victoria is working on a project that involves the compilation of lists of artworks stolen from Jewish collections and their postwar fates.
