During World War II, the Nazis looted everything from major artwork found at national museums to privately-owned Jewish ceremonial and personal items. Fortunately, Nazi records were very meticulous. Our partnership with the National Archives has made it possible to explore these records today on Footnote. During the month of May, all documents from the Holocaust Assets Collection will be free to access. One of the most popular collections at the National Archives, this provides a picture of the Holocaust that many are unaware of.
