✏America and the Return of Nazi Contraband Book Summary : The Nazi war on European culture produced the greatest dislocation of art, archives, and libraries in the history of the world. In the ruins of the Reich, Allied occupiers found millions of paintings, books, manuscripts, and pieces of sculpture, from the mediocre to the priceless, hidden in thousands of secret hideaways. This book tells the story of how the American Military Government in Germany, spearheaded by a few dozen dedicated Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives (MFA&A) officers and enlisted men, coped with restoring Europe's cultural heritage.

✏The Return of Cultural and Historical Treasures Book Summary : The return of cultural and historical treasures touches on a number of political and cultural issues, and often inspires controversy. As the world is changing, the concept of return is changing as well. The shrinking divisions between a poor South and a rich North, colonizer and colonized, and source countries and art and antique market countries all impact our thinking about return. How do Dutch heritage institutions deal with this new reality, when the return of their objects or collections comes under discussion? That is the central question in this critical book. In The Return of Cultural and Historical Treasures: The Case of the Netherlands, Jos van Beurden researches cases in which the Dutch state and Dutch heritage institutions have been handing over cultural and historical treasures that were acquired in colonial times and more recently. He investigates the dynamics of their return practice and gives his analysis extra depth by including cases in which the return has not materialized. The most remarkable of these is that of a keris--the traditional sword of Indonesia's national hero Diponegoro. Where is it? In addition to research the written records, many heritage directors and experts were interviewed for the book, making The Return of Cultural and Historical Treasures an indispensable addition to the literature about return by the Netherlands of art and human remains.

✏The Brownies of Cologne Book Summary : What if you woke up in the morning and all the work you had to do had already been done? And nobody wanted anything in return? And the next morning the same thing would happen. And the morning after that again. And the next day it would happen again? The former inhabitants of Cologne had just this pleasure and know that firsthand.Hardly anyone today knows the first version of the Brownies of Cologne saga, which was written by Cologne educator and city historian Ernst Weyden. He probably thought of his experience with the annoying grammar-school boys- when he pondered laziness, ingratitude, diligence and esteem almost 200 years ago and prosaically ventilated the outcome of his deliberations. Ten years later, the artist and jack-of-all-trades Alfred Kopisch liked the tragicomic narrative so much that he sang of it as a lively ballad - and made it really famous. The German graphic artist and illustrator Nuesret Kaymak pays his due respect as a Rhinelander by choice in his homage to the creator, interpreter and creation.
