Word or term in question:

n'en étaient pas moins tout aussi inquiétants

Context:

Entre ces deux temps, l’un et l’autre dominés par les combats qui marquèrent le commencement et la fin des hostilités, il fallut faire face à d’autres dangers qui n’avaient pas été prévus.

Ils n’en étaient pas moins tout aussi inquiétants pour le sort des dépôts et celui des collections nationales, car ils découlaient de conceptions très particulières qu’avaient certains chefs hitlériens désireux de servir, à leur manière, la plus grande Allemagne.

I know what the phrase means but just want to know the best way to word it in English.

They were no less equally worrying for the fate

My comment:

Between these two periods, both dominated by the fighting that marked the beginning and end of hostilities, other dangers had to be faced that had not been foreseen.

They were no less equally worrying for the fate of the repositories and that of the national collections, for they stemmed from very particular conceptions of certain Hitlerite leaders wishing to serve, in their own way, the greater Germany.

Wow! That's more than giving a (small) hand. I think it's possible to put "nonetheless" instead of "no less". Can we use "fate" for objects? An alternative is yo use "prospect".

they were not in the slightest way any less disconcerting

My comment:

I chose "disconcerting" as the author is referring to inanimate objects as opposed to persons, like Hitler.

I think your rendition comes closest to the actual meaning, but I think I would opt for "they did not, in the slightest way, produce any less anxiety".
