Rape of Europa
Wednesday, February 27
Adolf Hitler spent years struggling to establish himself as an artist before his political ambitions rose to the surface and he brought the Nazi Party to power in Germany. This documentary offers a unique perspective on how Hitler's aesthetic viewpoint may have affected his nation's actions during World War II. Rape of Europa examines the artistic tastes of Hitler and his leading advisors, and how they looted many of the great museums and private art collections of Europe during the course of World War II in order to stock museums built during the Third Reich.
