In December 2017, IES Senior Fellow, Carla Shapreau, was awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship grant to support research and preparation of a book regarding the Nazi-era looting of musical material culture. The Nazi era resulted in the catastrophic plunder of all things musical, including autographs and manuscripts, rare printed music, books, musical instruments, and musicalia. This research and book project will reconstruct facets of this history and the lives tethered to these cultural objects and consider why this subject matters today.
