ZOOM- Art & World War II: Hitler’s Cultural Ambitions and Nazi Theft
This program will also be streamed to our Kingsley Room. Register here if you want to watch it at the library.
From his failed attempts as a painter to his grand plans to loot European masterworks, art played a central role in Hitler’s personal life and political strategies. Learn more about Nazi exhibitions of so-called “degenerate art,” theft from European churches, museums and private collections, as well as the challenge of restoring works to their rightful heirs today.
