Cover of the recommendations for the preservation of wax moulages
In February, 2008, the German Federal Cultural Foundation, together with the Cultural Foundation of the German States, initiated the KUR programme for the conservation and restoration of endangered cultural artefacts. Museums, archives and libraries submitted 121 proposals, from which a jury selected 26 projects dealing with important specimens for cultural history that urgently require conservatorial and/or restorational care.

The Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden (DHMD) holds one of the world's largest collections of wax moulages, comprising 2000 lifelike representations of pathological symptoms. European museums and universities still have collections of moulages of great value to cultural and medical history. Under the KUR programme, the DHMD in cooperation with other renowned institutions will develop a new technique for the conservation and restoration of these specimens and apply it on its own collection. The objective is to develop general standards and guidelines for the conservation and restoration of moulages, as well as an internet-based training course for restorers
