The Monuments Men were a group of men and women from thirteen nations, most of whom were volunteers and had expertise as museum directors, curators, art scholars and educators, artists, architects, and archivists. The Monuments Men job description was simple: to save as much of the culture of Europe as they could during World War II. Jack Needle, historian and professor emeritus will tell the story of these unlikely heroes whose courageous spirit and actions actually enabled the best of humanity to defeat the worst.
