Les films dans le patrimoine spolié entre Est et Ouest de 1939 à la fin de la guerre froide. Une histoire en chantier

Abstract : This article addresses the historiographical advances related to the films that were looted during the World War Two. It sets out to place them among a broader history of cultural goods in times of war and postwar. These recent works are put in perspective, in order to show their contribution to an entangled history of cultural heritage, violence and reparations. Freed from conventional chronological and geographical divisions, they embrace periods of War and Cold War, on both sides of the Iron Curtain. The article first analyses how films and cinema industry took place in Nazi lootings and pillages. The second part presents what we do know about the fate of plundered film heritage during a long Cold War, and finally concludes by attempting to interpret a dialectical relationship between secrecy, oblivion and memory which continued until the 1990s and explains a still fragmentary historiography.
