The Real Monuments Men
8th June 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Dr Nigel Pollard will be discussing the British Army’s role in protecting cultural heritage during the Second World War.
The UK are currently creating a specialist unit for cultural property protection within the armed forces to ensure we do not lose our beloved monuments, artwork and culture. This unit is not the first of its kind, however, the ‘Monuments Men’ whose activities to protect art and monuments were largely forgotten until the 2014 film starring George Clooney.
