The Real Monuments Men

Yesterday I shared with you my review on the film The Monuments Men which is based on the true story of WWII's Monuments Men who helped retrieve and gather art that was stolen by the Nazis.

Today I would like to share with you some photos of the real Monuments Men in action.

I don't know how you feel when you look at photos of the past but I see the men and women who sacrificed their time, energy, and sometimes lives in order for me to have the life I have, I feel so much pride.

Bravo to the men and women who helped save the history and cultures that they did. Here is another fabulous article on The Monuments Men that I found-HERE.

  1. Gratitude, immense gratitude fills my heart. Their work saved a great deal of the world's most incredible, gorgeous, important art and reminded humanity that even in the wake of unending horror (WW2), there was still a great deal of good (people) in the world who wanted to help set on track once again, no matter what it took to do so.
