A website featuring art that may have been stolen by the Nazis has crashed because it can’t handle to number of people who are trying to log-on. The Lost Art Internet Database says the crash came shortly after the German government released a statement last night saying it would start posting 25 paintings. The artwork is part of a huge collection of more than 14-hundred items found in a Munich apartment. The website lostart.de says the server had technical problems. Germany Believes about 590 of the more than 14-hundred art works may have been stolen by the Nazis. The website exists so people and institutions can tell if they have legitimate claims.
