Title: Oregon Law Review : Vol. 88 No. 1, p.037-094 : The New Battleground of Museum Ethics and Holocaust-Era Claims: Technicalities Trumping Justice or Responsible Stewardship for the Public Trust?
Author: Kreder, Jennifer Anglim
Abstract: In contrast to the optimistic hopes in 1998 to settle all claims expressed, we have seen a new trend emerge whereby current possessors of art displaced during the Holocaust, including museums, have been the first to file suit to quiet title, raising technical defenses. This Article will explore this recent trend, the reasons for it, and the consequences resulting from it. Part I will provide lesser known historical background missing from the mainstream legal literature. Parts II through VI will lay out the reasons for and progression of the restitution and declaratory judgment movement in Nazi-era art cases. Part VII discusses the consequences of the movement and offers best practices for the future for both claimants and present-day possessors.
