Abstract

This site provides access to the records held by the US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA, College Park, MD) on assets looted during the Holocaust and subsequently located, recovered, and returned. The primary stimulus for recent interest in these issues came only in the 1990s with the discovery of Swiss bank accounts and gold looted by the Nazis, but it has expanded to include cultural artifacts, art, and other monetary instruments. NARA actively aids researchers and implements the 1998 Nazi War Crimes Records Disclosure Act, a federal law requiring declassification and disclosure of materials related to Nazi war crimes and war criminals. The collection includes a digitized version of the finding aid and online versions of a number of relevant publications.
