Sponsor
Office of the Prime Minister of France

Date
10 September 1999

Description
The Commission for the Compensation of Victims of Spoliation Resulting From Anti-Semitic Legislation in Force During the Occupation (CIVS), also known as the Drai Commission, was established by decree (Decree of 10 September 1999) and is attached to the office of the Prime Minister. It was set up to inform the victims of spoliation or their heirs of the fate of the assets taken from them and to ascertain measures for reparation, restitution or compensation. Artwork claimed must be listed in the Musées Nationaux-Recuperation (known as MNRs). If there is no trace of the artwork, the Commission may provide compensation. Claims can be made by individuals of any nationality or place of residence. Claimants should provide any supporting documents and details of the loss suffered. Claim forms and detailed information are available on the website and at the address below.

Activity reports of the Commission are published annually.  Ten have been published to date (October 2011) and run from 2001 - 2010. To read the reports, click here.
