The film stars George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, and Jean Dujardin. Rated PG

The Monuments Men: Saving Europe's Treasures

November 15th, 2014, 2:00pm to 3:30pm
The compelling story of how art historians, museum professionals and military personnel worked to protect Europe's cultural treasures and repatriate stolen objects during and after World War II has inspired numerous books and films. This lecture presented by art historian Jeff Mishur deals with the complexity of Germany’s cultural climate in the 1930s and 1940s in order to explain why the efforts of those associated with The Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program were so urgently needed.
