DALLAS (AP) - The Monuments Men helped return almost 5 million works of art and cultural objects looted by the Nazis during World War II, but hundreds of thousands of treasures are still missing. And the Dallas-based foundation focused on honoring the group - and continuing its work - hopes that a new feature on its website will help recover some of those works.

The Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art has compiled a list of “most wanted” works of art and documents. They include works by Sandro Botticelli, Auguste Rodin and Paul Cezanne.

The foundation also notes that there are still missing albums from two series that document works taken by the Nazis.

The work of the U.S. Army’s Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Section is depicted in the new George Clooney movie “The Monuments Men.”
