Personal Stories of Dispossession and Restitution

The Jewish Cultural Quarter and the Rijksmuseum are organizing the exhibition Dispossessed, a major museum project on cultural property that was stolen by the Nazis from Jewish owners in the Netherlands, with a special focus on art, Jewish books and ritual objects. The stories of Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita, Max Heppner, Desi Goudstikker, Louis Lamm, and others make the owners visible and show that claiming and returning Jewish cultural property is still relevant today, and a form of redress.
