The article focuses on the issue of the looted Jewish art during the fascist Slovak State (1939 - 1945) and represents a pioneer attempt to summarize all available information. It covers the legal background (The Jewish Codex of 1941), procedures for gathering and evaluation of concerned objects (paintings, sculptures, applied art etc.), personal involvement of local art historians (Dr. Vladimír Wágner, Dr. Alžbeta Guntherová-Mayerová) and the works of art still in possession of local galleries (e.g. Slovak National Gallery).
