You may have seen the movie, but do you know the real story about the monuments men? On Thursday, May 8, The Northwestern University Library and Block Cinema present a short documentary and panel discussion about the monuments men, an unlikely World War II band of brothers: academics, historians and architects who were called to the front lines of the bloodiest war in history to rescue centuries worth of priceless artworks and cultural artifacts from Nazi-occupied Europe.

Following the screening, Anne Rorimer, art scholar, curator, and daughter of one of the primary monuments men, James Rorimer, as well as Jason Nargis, Manuscript Librarian for Special Collections, Northwestern University Library, and Howard Trienens, attorney, author and repatriation expert, will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Block Museum Director, Lisa Corrin.

This event (7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.) is free and open to the public.
