  • NAZI ART THEFT

ABOUT THE SHOW

An epic story of the theft, destruction and miraculous survival of Europe’s art treasures during the Third Reich and World War II.

In a journey through seven countries, Nazi Art Theft will take you into the violent whirlwind of fanaticism, greed, and warfare that threatened to wipe out the artistic heritage of Europe.
