Title
The Central State Archive of the Highest Organs of Government and Administration of Ukraine (TsDAVO)

Description
TsDAVO contains important information about the Nazi removal of Ukrainian cultural property. The majority of record groups in TsDAVO are now open to researchers although access is still limited with regard to some documents in top-secret files. The collection most relevant to looted art research are the files detailing the operations of the Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg (ERR) (record groups 3674 and 3676) on the territory of Ukraine. Researchers interested in access to TsDAVO should present an official letter from a sponsoring institution in Ukraine.
