What would happen if the Mona Lisa or Michelangelo’s David were destroyed? Well, this almost happened during the Third Reich and World War II as part of the Nazi’s large-scale theft of European art. “The Rape of Europa” tells the story of the theft, destruction, and remarkable survival of many of Europe’s art treasures. Leonard is joined by Richard Berge, who wrote, directed, and produced this documentary.
Events: “The Rape of Europa” opens September 14 in New York at the Angelika Film Center and the Paris Theatre
