Abstract

Over the last few years in Australia disputes have arisen over the ownership of artworks which were confiscated from their Jewish owners during the Nazi era, 1933-1945. This article describes the confiscation and looting of artworks in Europe and the implications of those activities for the provenance of ownership after the Second World War.
