WASHINGTON (AP) ― Adolf Hitler’s last known album of artworks stolen by the Nazis during World War II is being donated to the U.S. National Archives to mark the anniversary of the war’s end in Europe.

The leather-bound “Hitler Album’’ joins dozens of others recovered by the U.S. Army to identify and return stolen art. The album being turned over to the archives Thursday catalogued French collections.

The story of the Army’s effort to trace and return looted art was made famous by the movie “The Monuments Men’’ starring George Clooney and Matt Damon.

The Monuments Men Foundation is donating the album to the archives with one of the last surviving “Monuments Men’’ who was part of the real recovery team.

It’s not clear whether any new information can be gleaned from the album.
