Sometimes museums become a kind of accomplice, whether they want to or not. Many collections still contain objects which were once Jewish items, from expropriations during the land reform or from emigrants. We quote the log from 04 April 1956: "On instruction of the Chairman of the Council of the district of Templin, colleague Ballhorn and colleague Göhler, Secretary of the Council of the district, 2 chairs from the married couple Elfriede and Ewald Frensch, who fled the country, are presented to the Museum of Local History Templin by the colleague Döring." Whatever the emigrants left behind, was forfeited to the state, became the people's property. The official most likely noticed the two chairs due to their carvings. So off to the museum. The museum manager could not (or would not) say no. It is an issue of candor to clear up such cases and, if still possible, to disperse justice.
