During World War II, the Nazi party stole thousands of pieces of European artwork and other items of cultural significance. Some were destroyed, but after the war, many treasures were recovered by the Allies’ Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program (MFAA). Hundreds, however, remain missing and there is an international effort to find them and return them to the heirs of the rightful owners. If you’re a movie buff, you can learn more about the Nazi plunder with these films: Woman in Gold (USA, 2015), The Art Dealer (France, 2015), Monuments Men (USA, 2014), Rape of Europa (USA, 2007).
