REVUE D’HISTOIRE DE LA SHOAH, n°213, Mars 2021
The Nazi organizations in charge of looting paid special attention to musical instruments, both old and prestigious and familiar and commonplace. Classical music, and particularly German music, was at the heart of the Nazi regime’s staging. A « music kommando » was created within the great organization for the plundering of cultural goods, which collected the most precious instruments, as well as old scores and musicological treatises, many of which were extremely rare. Hundreds of thousands of musical instruments, stolen from all over Europe, were distributed to the German population and to the Reich museums. These instruments, which had a strong emotional dimension, were rarely returned after the Shoah. This dossier on the spoliation of musical instruments is the very first on this subject and lays down precious milestones for future research. Cairn ; Mémorial
