The German foundation that co-ordinates research into the origin of Nazi-confiscated property – is also going to start looking into cultural objects collected during Germany’s colonial past.

The German Lost Art Foundation says it will begin developing guidelines for project funding – that will include provenance research in museums, collections and basic research.

The foundation’s main job is to help identify property confiscated from Jewish owners during the Nazi era from 1933-1945 and to facilitate its return or compensation.

The foundation also researches cultural assets lost under the Soviet occupation – and in communist East Germany.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries – German colonies once included territories in what is now Namibia, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Mozambique.
