      More than fifty years after the Holocaust, European and other countries are confronting newly-emerging memories and guilt-filled ghosts from the past. The campaign for the restitution of Jewish property stolen during the Holocaust touched a raw nerve Author: A. Beker.   Looted Art and Its Restitution: The war saw the plunder, looting and spoliation of cultural objects in Europe on a scale that dwarfed anything seen even in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic period. Indeed, it already began as soon as the Nazis came to power in Germany. As a result the number of restitution actions and claims fell. The steady intensification of anti-Jewish feeling during the war was undoubtedly a product of German propaganda, but it was also a consequence of German-orchestrated plunder. Fear of restitution played a role in the hostility directed at Jewish survivors by people liberated from German rule while in possession of purloined Jewish property.
