 RECOMMENDATIONS

 

The Monuments Men

by Robert M. Edsel with Bret Witter

- Reviewed by Mary Zingerella

 

When you think that you know about all of the details of preparations for a coming war, or what to look for when an area is taken back by the Allies, saving priceless works of art is not on the A-list.

 

The story is about a group of experts that were gathered to save the culture of nations. Everyone knows of the Holocaust, that the possessions of families were taken. But where did they go, ready for transport to Germany?

 

Many works, deemed not worthy of saving by Hitler, were burned, and many more disappeared. The sadness comes home again when one considers that the Nazis were not just invading countries, they were invading lives beyond the control that occupation brings. Gripping and engrossing.

 

Available at your library in hardcopy (place hold) or audiobook (download from owwl2go )
