Subject:

General

Level of diffculty:

Easy / medium

Word or term in question:

comme matériaux destinés à son œuvre

Context:

Le centre de Linz, avec son musée et ses collections, était sa réalisation. C’était personnellement qu’il voulait s’en occuper. Les œuvres d’art ne pouvaient donc être que provisoirement sous un contrôle autre que le sien, avant de lui revenir définitivement, comme matériaux destinés à son œuvre.

Talking about how control over all of the artwork that was stolen from the Jews by the Nazis was ultimately supposed to be under Hitler's personal control.
