„Intellectual Property Rights Related to Works Authored in Ghettos and Concentration Camps“.

The Chair for Public Law and International Law (Prof. Dr. Thilo Marauhn) cordially invites you to the one-day conference „Intellectual Property Rights Related to Works Authored in Ghettos and Concentration Camps“:
Art can be an emotional escape, and the exhibition “Trace of Life” shows this power by presenting the creations of some of the 1.5 million children murdered in the Holocaust. This exhibition also tells a copyright story, which is part of our cooperation partner Prof. Lior Zemer’s academic legal research. The copyright ownership in works of art, drama, music, and literature created by Jewish prisoners in Nazi concentration camps is an underrepresented topic discussed in academic legal research to date. This conference, organized by the Chair for Public Law and International Law (JLU Giessen), will open new ground in this field by inviting different experts who will talk about their research. In addition, the conference will deepen the research by discussing the question of ownership in
an interdisciplinary scope.
The organizers would like to thank the Juristische Studiengesellschaft Gießen e.V. (Friends of the School of Law, Justus Liebig University Gießen) for supporting this event.

International Summer-School 2023: Post-Holocaust-Remedies

During four weeks of summer school, as part of the Holocaust Remedies project, 25 students from Israel, Columbia, and Germany dealt with core legal issues relating to restitution instruments for Holocaust victims. The summer school took place in Israel and Germany. Participants not only had the opportunity to explore problems and issues related to the topic from an academic, political, social, and judicial perspective, but they also experienced historical places in different countries. You will find news and reports soon on this page.

On this website we would like to inform about the newest project developments and activities. Soon you will also find reports on the current status of the project as well as our podcast series, scientific analyses and press releases.
