Synopsis of The Rape of Europa:

In addition to being some of the worst war criminals in history, Hitler and the Nazi regime were also among the most prolific art thieves. During World War II, the Third Reich ordered the destruction of thousands of pieces of art from what the Nazis termed "inferior" cultures and the theft of thousands more. This documentary explores the effects of the cultural destruction perpetrated by the Nazis across Europe, and examines the ongoing struggle to recover and return the stolen art. The Rape of Europa is especially powerful and moving when focusing on the personal stories of artworks taken from their owners and restored to the families decades later.

The film presentation and Dr. Berenbaum's lecture are sponsored by the EBIJFF, the CCJCC and the Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation.
