ERR Archival Guide

Written by Patricia Kennedy Grimsted, the preeminent expert on WWII displaced archives, Reconstructing the Record of Nazi Cultural Plunder: A Guide to the  Dispersed Archives of the Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg (ERR) and the Postwar Retrieval of ERR Loot is funded by the Claims Conference.  The Guide documents the current locations of all ERR records, details their contents, and provides links to online sources.  The Guide also describes considerable documentation regarding the subsequent fate, postwar retrieval, and restitution of the ERR loot.A previous version sponsored by the Claims Conference was published under the title of Reconstructing the Record of Nazi Cultural Plunder: A Survey of the Dispersed Archives of the Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg (ERR) by the International Institute for Social History, whose own massive Amsterdam and Paris archival collections were plundered by the ERR and whose building on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam was used for the ERR headquarters in the Netherlands. The ERR Survey in its first edition produced by the International Institute of Social History IISH-IISG, Amsterdam, 2010 may be seen at http://www.iisg.nl/publications/errsurvey/.
