Author to discuss art looting by the Nazis, Nov. 12
Posted November 8, 2002; 01:55 p.m.
Hector Feliciano will discuss his book "The Lost Museum: The Nazi Conspiracy to Steal the World's Greatest Works of Art" at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 12 in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
Feliciano researched classified and recently declassified documents, interrogation reports, detailed Nazi inventories, private family archives, museum exhibition, and sales catalogs, and conducted thousands of interviews. His work reveals a conspiratorial international art trade with present links in the United States, France, Germany, Switzerland, and the former Soviet Union.
Since the publication of his book, many rightful owners have recovered their stolen paintings and artwork.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Archeology , Accion Puertorriquena y Amigos, Program in Jewish Studies, Department of History, and the Center for Jewish Life. A reception will follow the lecture in Shultz Dinning Hall, Robertson Hall.
