In a journey through seven countries, “The Rape of Europa” takes the audience into the violent whirlwind of fanaticism, greed, and warfare that threatened to wipe out the artistic heritage of Europe. For twelve long years, the Nazis looted and destroyed art on a scale unprecedented in history. But young art professionals as well as ordinary heroes, from truck drivers to department store clerks, fought back with an extraordinary effort to safeguard, rescue and return the millions of lost, hidden and stolen treasures. Tragically, unique masterpieces were destroyed and lost to posterity forever. Art restoration and the finding of lost gems is still taking place today.
