The memory of the Holocaust in all it's aspects should not be erased, especially in Germany.

For the memory of Max Stern, all the dispossessed, that the light of remembered truth be a beacon for justice & healing for all....
And for Zarayah who sees feels knows the ineffable connected radiant oneness.

Canceling this exhibition, for the reasons given, can be viewed as condoning the persecution of Mr. Stern. Shame.

As someone involved in the curation and catalogue writing/editing for the cancelled exhibition, I am signing for a thousand reasons, including as a sign of respect and admiration for the Director of the Stadtmuseum in Düsseldorf, with whom several of us were privileged to work.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I’m surprised that an exhibition promoting provenance research as well as restitution issues is suppressed by local authorities. Transparency could eventually provide the full, documented and authenticated collecting history of art objects. Would that be the focus on the planned symposium?

Thanks for adding your voice.

I'm signing because I wholeheartedly believe the exhibition should go ahead as planned so as to educate the public about issues of ownership, not elide them.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Most people alive today don't realize how much was lost in the Holocaust, and the failure to ALWAYS and willingly provide full restitution of any and all property stolen by the German "government" between 1933-1945 is never acceptable. It is, indeed, a minimum obligation. It is nearly 2018. This should have been resolved decades ago.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Transparency and education are two of the most crucial aspects of forwarding provenance research and restitution; that an exhibition which would promote both should be suppressed in this way is alarming to say the least.
