Returned from Russia

Nazi Archival Plunder in Western Europe and Recent Restitution Issues - Afterword

Edited by: Patricia Kennedy Grimsted

In this 2013 "Afterword to Returned from Russia", the companion volume to the 2007 publication, "Returned from Russia: Nazi Archival Plunder in Western Europe and Recent Restitution Issues" [ISBN 978 1 903987 13 1], Patricia Grimsted relates more recent developments: initial returns to Austria in 2009 * the search for Masonic files in Moscow * continuing hope for return of Greek and other Jewish records, offset by the lack of progress in returns from Russia to Poland and Germany * the quandary of NS-period records divided between Moscow and Germany. Grimsted vividly describes the controversial pending claim in US court for books and archives in Moscow by the Chabad community in Brooklyn. In conclusion, she recalls with hope the Russian commitments "to facilitate the return of 'displaced' cultural valuables still held in Russia." [PLEASE NOTE: This Afterword is also published in the complete, single bound second edition of "Returned from Russia: Nazi Archival Plunder in Western Europe and Recent Restitution Issues with Afterword 2013" [ISBN 978 1 903987 28 5].
