"Records about stolen artworks taken during World War II are to be placed on an international database so items can be traced.

It is hoped publishing the documents online will help families and historians find missing items seized by the Nazis.

The National Archives and the Commission for Looted Art have signed an agreement to provide the documents.

The files, dated between 1939 and 1961, feature inventories and images of art.

The records also include details about efforts to identify and recover the articles during and after World War II."
