Cinema @the MFA: The Rape of Europa
Sunday, April 6, 2 p.m., with an introduction by MFA Director Kent Lydecker
Thursday, April 10, 6 p.m., film only
Described as equal parts history, thriller, and cautionary tale, the film offers a provocative account of the theft of Europe’s cultural masterpieces by the Nazis during World War II. It also chronicles the recovery of many of these artworks by curators, historians, and journalists and their return to the Jewish families, who once owned them, or to their heirs.
This program is FREE with Museum admission.
