Claims is an ever growing list. The Monuments Men Foundation will regularly update this list and will consider all submissions meeting the criteria. The Foundation is interested not only in missing works of art, but also documents, manuscripts and books.

The decision to add any submissions is at the sole discretion of the Foundation. The Foundation operates in the footsteps of the Monuments Men and therefore, it does not pay rewards nor finder’s fees. However, it considers each case on a stand-alone bases and will, at times, consider appropriate to request a consultancy fee to be paid. It is also not interested in prosecuting people who come forward to do the right thing; quite the contrary, it wants to recognize and honor anyone who is determined to return some missing object to its rightful owner. We respect the desire of those wishing to assist anonymously and will maintain all such information in confidence.  


Submittals, containing an image and information similar to the existing entries, should be forwarded to: WWIIart @ For inquires regarding further details of specific cases, please email the Foundation at the address listed above.
