The Holocaust was not just the greatest murder in history; it was also the greatest theft of art in history. This dramatic film recounts the decades long struggle by Maria Altmann, born and raised in Austria, to recover five Gustav Klimt paintings stolen from her family by the Nazis in 1938, and which have been hanging in the Austrian National Gallery since 1945.
In person, Victoria Reed, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, curator of provenance
