Inspiration: Monuments Men
Set in the 11-month period between D-Day and V-E Day, this riveting account tells the story of the Monuments Men, a group of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians and others who risked their lives throughout Europe to help recover works of art before they are stolen and destroyed by Hitler and the Nazis.
This group, consisting of both men and women, came from 13 nations across the world and were not paid for their service. Seen as unlikely heroes, these people left the comfort of their homes and the love of their families to help save these art pieces for future generations to see, risking and possibly losing their lives.
Based on the book "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History," by Robert M. Edsel.
