Missing Album From Hitler’s Fantasy Museum Found in Ohio
The world’s most famous failed art student planned to build a “Führermuseum” in his hometown and fill it with his favorite (and often ill-gotten) art — photos of which were collected first in various scrapbooks. One of those volumes was just discovered in the Ohio home of a WWII veteran, who decided to have it returned to Germany. — PZS

Sixty-four years after Pistone brought the album home to Ohio, the 87-year-old has learned its full significance: It’s part of a series compiled for Hitler featuring art he wanted for his “Fuhrermuseum,” a planned museum in Linz, Austria, Hitler’s hometown.
Pistone’s album is expected to be formally returned to Germany in a ceremony at the U.S. State Department in January. Germany has 19 other albums discovered at the Berchtesgaden complex that are part of a 31-album collection of works either destined for or being considered for the Linz museum.
