Hitler Album could shed light on missing looted art





A newly discovered catalogue of artworks stolen by Nazis compiled for Adolf Hitler could help unravel the mystery surrounding the whereabouts of lost materpieces seized during the Second World War.

As they marched through Europe, Adolf Hitler's Nazis pillaged the world's finest art collections. Thousands of art works were stolen for the F├╝hrer's personal enjoyment, many of which are still missing.

Now, a newly discovered document could unravel the mystery surrounding the whereabouts of lost masterpieces.

The "Hitler Album" contains details of art works stolen by the Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg (ERR), an organisation established by the Nazis in 1940 to confiscate works of art from territories under occupation.
