Rape of Europa

Winding its way into the past and through seven countries, The Rape of Europa delves into the looting, plundering, and destruction of great works of art by the Nazis, as well as the brave and ingenious attempts by curators and historians to rescue what works remained. Beginning and ending with the story of Gustav Klimt’s Gold Portrait, stolen by the Nazis in 1938 and currently the most expensive painting ever sold, this epic tale reveals how individuals and groups managed to safeguard and rescue the greatest art treasures and artistic heritage of Europe. (35mm)
