(Early application for summer internships
The Central Registry welcomes interns to assist with its Information and Provenance Research Projects on Nazi-looted art. Both areas provide an opportunity for undergraduates and graduates, especially in art history, history, languages and law, and generally for people with language, typing
and computer skills, or those wishing to acquire them, to gain practical experience and specialised knowledge.
After World War II many works of art, which the Nazi regime had systematically looted, were never returned. Thousands were absorbed by national art collections in Germany, France, Austria and Holland, or were sold on the international art market. In the 1990s government commissions
were set up in many countries to investigate the fate of looted art.
The Central Registry of Information on Looted Cultural Property 1933-1945 is a charitable initiative under the auspices of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies. Our website contains research from over 45 countries, news reports, archival materials and primary documents, as well as details of over 20,000 looted objects.
Work opportunities include provenance research, web-based work and training, data entry and preparation as well as administrative assignments.
