The Looting of furniture from Jewish households
"The exhibit in the "Imperial Court Depot of Movables" deals with the "aryanisation" of eight Jewish households whose confiscated furnishings were stored in the state "Depot of Movables". In mounting this exhibition, the institution is focusing on two issues: its involvement in the national socialists' racist policy of expropriation some 60 years ago, and how it dealt with this confiscated property in the decades following 1945."
