On April 17, a mission was created within the Ministry of Culture, for the research and the restitution of cultural property spoliated.
Three weeks later, on May 7, the Prime Minister appointed four qualified personalities (in the fields of art history, the art market, the history of the Second World War, and the heritage law) who will join the deliberative panel of the CIVS to examine the files of cultural property spoliated.
The publication of these texts will allow the implementation of the decree of 1 October , 2018, in particular the measures taken to give a new impetus to the search and the restitution of the works spoliated during the Second World War.
