Sixth report on restitution, Vienna 15 November 2005 (p. 273): 'Concerning the acquisitions of the municipal collections from the Dorotheum, from the art trade and from antiques' dealers as well as donations from public institutions, the Viennese Commission on Restitution in its meeting on 27 October 2004 has come to the conclusion that if the sole indication of a possible expropriation is a date of the acquisition between 13 March 1938 and 8 May 1945, this is not alone sufficient to justify an item's restitution. However, these acquisitions and donations cannot be considered as safe (as they possibly involve items expropriated from anonymous victims).'
