Narrated by Joan Allen and based on Lynn H. Nicholas’s award-winning book, The Rape of Europa uses expert testimony and archival footage to craft a definitive saga of the Nazi plundering of Europe’s greatest artworks during World War II. Paintings, sculptures, tapestries, even entire church altars—nothing was safe as Europe’s leading museums, galleries, and private collections were emptied into the Nazis’ vast underground vaults. Sixty years on, many pieces (such as Klimt’s famous portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer) are still being restored to their owners. Insightful and astonishing, The Rape of Europa is a timely exploration of one of the most calamitous eras in modern history.
