Monuments Men Lecture

Sunday, November 16th, 2 PM

The compelling story of how art historians, museum professionals and military personnel worked to protect Europe’s cultural treasures and repatriate stolen objects during and after World War II has inspired numerous books and films.

Join us as art historian and tour guide Jeff Mishur shares with us the complexity of Germany’s cultural climate in the 1930′s and 1940′s in order to explain why the efforts associated with the Monument’s Men, Fine Arts, and Archives program were so urgently needed.
