  • The Ardelia Hall Collection of records relating to the Nazi looting of Jewish possessions, including looted art

On the matter of looted art, there are a number of good research guides out there. One of the best was published by in 2007: Legal Protection of Cultural Property: A Selective Resource Guide.
