Looted Art – before, during and after WW II

May 12 – August 27. Bergkerk, Deventer, the Netherlands

Looted Art is the story of Jewish art dealers and private collectors whose artworks fell into German hands during the Second World War. This was often a matter of forced sales, and sometimes of organized looting. The works on display are on loan from the Dutch state collection and Dutch museums. In addition, there are some families that have loaned their successfully reclaimed artworks for this remarkable exhibition. Tickets can be obtained at the Bergkerk exhibition space, at the tourist office and on this website.
