Author Robert Edsel on "Monuments Men"
New Orleans, LA –
WWII was the most destructive war in history and caused the greatest dislocation of cultural artifacts. Hundreds of thousands of items remain missing. The main burden fell to a few hundred men and women, curators and archivists, artists and art historians from 13 nations. Their task was to save and preserve what they could of Europe's great art, and they were called the "Monuments Men". WWNO's Paul Maassen Interviews Author Robert Edsel about his book "Monuments Men." Edsel spoke at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans on Saturday Sept 19th.
