Hitler's Linz Collection

Events and Conferences

Published by the German Historical Museum, in cooperation with the Federal Office for Central Services and Unresolved Property Issues (BADV), this is a searchable, illustrated, online catalogue of 4,747 works of art found after the war by the Allies in the Linz Collection or Sonderauftrag Linz (Special Commission: Linz), with provenance details. 

It shows paintings, sculptures, furniture, porcelain, and tapestries that Adolf Hitler and his agents purchased or appropriated from confiscated property between the end of the 1930s and 1945, primarily for a museum planned for Linz, but  also for  other collections.
