Rape Of Europa

Episode 1 of 1

For 12 long years, the Nazis looted and destroyed art on a scale unprecedented in history. But heroic young art historians and curators from America and across Europe fought to rescue and return millions of lost, hidden and stolen treasures. This documentary tells the epic and miraculous tale of how Europe's art treasures survived the systematic theft and deliberate damage perpetrated by the Third Reich during World War II. The legacy of this history continues to play out today as families recover looted works of art and nations fight over the ill-gotten spoils of war.
