Czech Republic


Forty six countries have backed the foundation of an institute aiming to track the return of Jewish art and property stolen by the Nazis.

A former Nazi concentration camp in the northern Czech town of Terezin, or Theresienstadt in German, will host the European Shoah Legacy Institute, a body that will monitor restitution claims by survivors of the Holocaust.

The Jewish Museum of Prague was established in 1906. During the German occupation, the Nazis closed the museum to the public and used the building as a collection center for Jewish artifacts from Bohemia and Moravia. The museum’s educational center focuses on Judaism and the history of the Jewish people, as well as on antisemitism and the Holocaust. A goal of the center is to raise awareness about the current Jewish community in the Czech Republic, and develops programs for educators in conjunction with the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
