Rape of Europa

/ posted in: Entertainment

I watched a great documentary yesterday called The Rape of Europa. I hears about it on NPR quite a while ago and it finally came to Netflix.

The movie is about the theft of art by the Nazis. It covers a lot of ground including families who had art stolen, countries trying to get treasures back, and the Allied soliders who worked to stabilized recovered art while battles were going on around them. It also talks about trying to decide if buildings with known art treasures should be bombed and how to evacuate museums. It is a great movie for anyone interested in art or history.

It also made me really want to visit Krakow and Florence.
