6:30 pm: Art & World War II: Hitler’s Cultural Ambitions and Nazi Theft

From his failed attempts as a painter to his grand plans to loot European masterworks, art played a central role in Hitler’s personal life and political strategies. Learn more about Nazi exhibitions of so-called “degenerate art,” theft from European churches, museums and private collections as well as the challenge of restoring works to their rightful heirs today.
