As the leading representative of the Dutch government during restitution negotiations, Röell participated in the recovery of thousands of works of art and other cultural objects looted from the Netherlands by the Nazis. He was particularly active at Zandvoort and Maastricht, the repositories for art belonging to multiple museums in Amsterdam, The Dutch Royal Archives, the photographic archives of The Hague, and stained glass from Sint Janskerk (the Great Church at Gouda), among other prominent collections.
