DALLAS (AP) - The U.S. National Archives is set to unveil newly discovered material related to art works stolen by the Nazis during World War II.

U.S. Archivist David S. Ferriero says the National Archives will announce “a significant discovery which will allow for a more complete view of Hitler’s premeditated theft of art and other cultural treasures,” on Tuesday morning.

The material, which has been held privately, is being donated to the National Archives by the Dallas-based Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art.

Robert M. Edsel launched the foundation that honors and continues the work of the men and women who helped Allied forces protect cultural treasures during World War II. Edsel will also attend the Tuesday news conference.
