About this Event

Millions of victims of Nazi genocide were separated from their families, homes and belongings. Decades later provenance researchers face the difficult task of uncovering the roots of these sometimes-invaluable items.

Since 1998, Austria is the only country in the world to implement a legal framework supporting art restitution. The enaction of this law has resulted in the restitution of more than 62,000 objects to their rightful owners or heirs. The work restitution organizations and institutions are doing to uncover the histories of these priceless pieces enables us to discover the human stories and significance behind these important items of history and in some cases, restore them to their rightful owners.

Dr. Pia Schölnberger, who currently works in the arts and culture section at the Federal Chancellery of Austria, joins Dr. Sara Angel, Founder and Executive Director of the Art Canada Institute, for an insightful conversation exploring select cases of restitution and recovery.

Registration required. Space is limited and reserved for professionals working in the downtown core. Address provided after registration has been confirmed.
