Word or term in question:

pouvait préparer le futur choix


Les chefs-d’œuvre reproduits dans ces albums avaient tous été confisqués en France dans les grandes collections israélites et photo- graphiés pour la plupart au musée du Jeu de Paume. Cet envoi pouvait préparer le futur choix du Führer en faveur du musée de Linz. Il se présentait donc comme une contribution à son œuvre de prédilection.

The "envoi", the albums, were a gift given to Hitler to convince him to do what the head of the ERR wanted.



The answer of CMD  See profile was rated best

was intended to serve as (a) basis for the future collection of the Linz Museum

My comment:

OR ... was (meant) to be the starting point for Hitler's future collection
ad "choix" -> syn. fr. "collection, assortiment"
