ABSTRACT
The article discusses how libraries in Germany can address problems with the acquisition of antiquarian books that turn out to have been stolen or looted by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945. It addresses the roles that libraries, antiquarian booksellers, and rare book auction houses can play in determining the provenance of cultural property and related restitution claims. It also considers the different legal, financial, and ethical obligations under which they operate.
