German Lost Art Foundation and Mosse Art Research Institute Traced Nazi-Looted Art and Launched Online Database #germany

JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
 

Last year there was a GerSIG message about the German Lost Art Foundation
which is a project of the German government which began subsidizing
private collectors attempts to return Nazi looted art to the families
of the original owners.

The government funding this at 3.4 million Euros, about $4 million USD.
The fund helps the current generation of owners find out how the art
objects came into their family. Under German law the descendants of
the original Jewish owners must rely on the good will of the private
collectors. Museums, however are bound by international principles which
require them to reach "just and fair solutions."

There are also statute of limitations that some current holders of stolen
art rely upon to prevent return of the stolen Nazi-era artworks.

Rudolf Mosse was one of the richest men in Berlin at the end of the 19th
century and thousands of paintings, books, sculptures and antiques were
seized >from him. The Mosse Art Research Initiative announced last year that
heirs and the Lost Art Foundation funded 500,000 Euros to help trace the
Nazi-looted art and return it to the rightful heirs. This is the first
cooperative research project between the heirs of a Jewish collector looted
by the Nazis and the German government.

Thus far, they have traced eight works - one at Vienna's Belvedere Palace
Museum, another at the Tel Aviv (Israel) Museum and Arkell Museum in
Canahohaire, New York, and Gdansk Polish Museum - the later which has not
yet been recovered. The Belvedere Palace Museum also housed the famous
Klimt painting, of the story of the Woman in Gold fame (Portrait of Adele
Bloch-Bauer I). Berlin's State Museums have restituted nine works in their
collections looted >from Mosse. Much of the looted art is also in private
collections.

If you're considering a visit to your ancestral town this spring, summer or
fall, and will also be visiting the local cemetery, please consider taking
photos of the remaining headstones for submission to JewishGen's JOWBR
database. As you know, JewishGen's goal is to preserve genealogical
information for future generations and virtually preserving headstones,
especially if they include Hebrew patronymic names, is incredibly valuable
to researchers.

Please check our current Cemetery Inventory at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ to see if we already have any
data or photos for a particular cemetery and the date the last update was
done.no point duplicating work. Information on making submissions can be
found at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
We request that submissions include complete, or near complete cemeteries,
not just family stones.

ViewMate Assistance with Translation Request for Moses ENDEL #general

This is to express heartfelt thanks to the members of JewishGen who
were so kind and generous with their time to provide translation for
the Hebrew on Moses ENDEL's cemetery stone. The ancestral town,
Vilkovisk (now Vilkaviskis, Lithuania) was indeed on the stone and
helps more than you know to tie members of the family together.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2018 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am always impressed and encouraged to see progress being made in our
various translation projects. Some of the progress is small and some
is more significant but all bring these projects closer and closer to
their ultimate aim of completely translating the Yizkor Books and
placing the translations online for the benefit of many.

We are so fortunate to have a number of dedicated people who do all
the work behind the scenes of the Yizkor Book Project. Be it
encouraging funding, being in contact with our professional
translators or seeking out the assistance of volunteer translators to
help advance the projects. Without these wonderful people, I would
have nothing to report and believe me, the activities of last month do
provide me with a great deal to report.

Something important to report, for instance, were a number of new
books have been published last month through the auspices of the
Yizkor Books in Print Project. The books that came out in April were
firstly, for Karelichy, Belarus - "Korelitz: The Life and Destruction
of a Jewish Community" and, secondly, "Pan Kapitan of Jordanow",
dealing with the rescue of Jewish children during the Holocaust period
by Yeshayahu Drucker, AKA "Pan Kapitan". A link leading to the details
of these and the other published books may be found at the end of this
report.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in April.

We have added in 11 new entries:

Hi,

I have reposted a family picture at the following link:

https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=60254

Since no one was able to identify it.

Could someone maybe tell me what type of clothing this man is wearing:
Chassidisch or litvisch ?

Bearing in mind that this picture was taken between 1904 and 1909.
To me, he looks more chassidisch, but I am not sure of the way litvische men
dressed at that time.

Thank you in advance for your help.
