Provenienzforschung zum Nachweis von NS-Raubgut in Bibliotheken - unter besonderer Ber├╝cksichtigung der Stadtbibliothek Hannover


Johanna Dora


March 2012


Nearly 70 years after the Second World War and the Nazi looting and expropriation, there are still many thousands of confiscated books in German libraries.

The return of such illegally taken property from library holdings is an important and lengthy task. In the first part of this bachelor thesis by Johanna Dora of the Hochschule Hannover, the procedure for the restitution of Nazi-confiscated art and the possible difficulties are explored. In the second part of the thesis, the author describes the practice of provenance research in the Stadtbibliothek Hannover (Hanover Public Library).
