1945 SPOILS OF WAR

History Revealed - - TIME CAPSULE OCTOBER -

A US soldier in­spects one of hun­dreds of art­works found in the home of Adolf Hitler’s right-hand man, Her­mann Göring. The Third Re­ich plun­dered many trea­sures from the coun­tries un­der its oc­cu­pa­tion dur­ing World War II. Hitler planned to con­cen­trate all of Europe’s most sig­nif­i­cant art in a sin­gle mu­seum based in his home­town, the Aus­trian city of Linz. Göring’s col­lec­tion alone ac­counted for 50 per cent of the works “con­fis­cated” from the Re­ich’s en­e­mies.
