1 - 2 weeks availability
Nazi looting has long been recognized as one of the crimes committed by the Third Reich during World War II, a crime which stripped economic wealth and artistic treasures from the populations the Nazis terrorized. This historical text addresses the often-overlooked practice of Allied looting, exploring the ways in which Allied forces engaged in thievery against the Germans. This book follows the journey of the Hungarian Crown Treasure from muddy oil drum in Austria to Fort Knox and back to Austria, and numerous lost treasures are discussed, including Raphael's Portrait of a Young Man, and lost manuscripts, including the earliest known printing by the Gutenberg press.
