Deutsches Buch-und Schriftenmuseum der Deutschen Bücherei Leipzig (German Book and Scripture Museum at the German Library, Leipzig)

Research into Nazi-confiscated cultural property in the museum's collection
The German Library, of which the museum is part, intends to undertake detailed research into all its collections in order to identify items that may have entered the collection through "book confiscations in the occupied countries or from emigrants".

Research into cultural property missing from the museum
In September 1945, incunabula were removed from the museum's collection by the Soviet occupation forces. These are today located in the Russian State Library in Moscow. More information on these incunabula can be obtained here.
