The Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel

March 5, 2015

7:00 PM

WWII was the most destructive war in history and caused the greatest dislocation of cultural artifacts. Hundreds of thousands of items remain missing. The main burden fell to a few hundred men and women, curators and archivists, artists and art historians from 13 nations. Their task was to save and preserve what they could of Europe's great art, and they were called the Monuments Men. This is their story. The 2014 film adaptation was directed by and stars George Clooney along with Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman and Cate Blanchett.
