Ottawa Contributes to Research on Nazi-Looted Art
The federal government has announced funding of almost $200,000 to help Canadian museums contribute to a key international research effort on the restitution of Holocaust-era works of art stolen by the Nazis.

In partnership with six museums, the Canadian Art Museum Directors Organization will undertake research and develop guidelines to help the museum community in Canada address the issue of art looted by the Nazis during World War II.

The project will also raise the international profile of Canada in this field, according to a statement from the Office of the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
