Book launch: Museums and the Holocaust (2nd edition)
On 27 January 2021, the Institute of Law Art will be hosting an online book launch for the second edition of Museums and the Holocaust, first published by Norman Palmer in 2000.
In the twenty years since the first edition there have been seismic shifts in the treatment by museums of works of art spoliated during the Nazi-era (1933-1945). This new edition, to be released at the end of January, has gathered together contributors from over ten countries to show the important changes that have taken place around the world.
The event will be presided over by Judge Tony Baumgartner, Judge of the Circuit Court of England and Wales and Deputy Chair of the UK’s Spoliation Advisory Panel.
There will be presentations from three of the book’s esteemed authors:
Dr Jacques Schuhmacher, Rosalind and Arthur Gilbert Trust Provenance and Spoliation Curator, Victoria & Albert Museum, UK
Evelien Campfens, Researcher, Leiden University and former Secretary General of the Restitutions Committee, Netherlands
Nicholas O’Donnell, Partner, Sullivan & Worcester LLP, USA
Institute of Law Art.
Not to miss.
