The Prague Conference, hosted by the Czech Republic, followed-up the 1998 Holocaust Era Assets Conference that took place in Washington, DC in 1998. The United States regards the Prague Conference as the most important opportunity of the decade to address the wrongs committed during the Nazi era. Representatives of some 49 countries, most of which were affected by Nazi crimes during World War II, and nearly two dozen NGOs were invited to attend. The Conference focused on immovable (real) property, Nazi-looted art, Holocaust education and remembrance, archival access, and the recovery of Judaica. In addition, there was a session on the social welfare needs of survivors of Nazi persecution, an issue of great importance to the United States. -06/30/09 Prague Holocaust Era Assets Conference: Terezin Declaration
