A one-day colloquium organised jointly by the State Ministry of Saxony for the Sciences and Arts, the Dresden State Collections of Art and the Coordination Office for Lost Cultural Assets in Magdeburg and intended as a training event for the staff of public museums, collections, academic collections, archives and libraries.

The colloquium papers focused on public collections and questions arising for them in connection with looted property of Jewish provenance.
