The site cited by Judith Elam has a link to the also highly interesting
"LostArt" website
http://www.lostart.de/Webs/DE/Start/Index.html
http://www.lostart.de/Webs/EN/Start/Index.html
run by the coordination office that was "set up jointly by the Government
and the Laender of the Federal Republic of Germany and registers cultural
objects which as a result of persecution under the Nazi dictatorship and the
Second World War were relocated, moved or seized, especially >from Jewish owners."

Between 1933 and 1945 German Jews sold books and other assets in order just
to survive. They were also required to relinquish their assets prior to
emigration. In addition, books were seized by the Nazis. These assets are
commonly referred to as "confiscated assets".

The Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin is in possession of confiscated
books. The Landesbibliothek wants to return these books to the rightful
owners, or their heirs.

Below is a link to a list of the original owners and the contact information
for the Landesbibliothek.
