The German Government has announced that it is giving museums €32m worth of grants to increase security provisions. This comes after several high profile thefts, including from the Dresden Green Vault in 2019.

German culture minister Monika Grütters is quoted saying:

Preserving our cultural infrastructure is one of the most important cultural policy goals of the federal government, especially in these times of crisis, culture creates identity and cohesion.
