Monuments Men Program
Saturday, February 27th at 1:00 PM
We will start the movie at 10:45 AM
The Monuments Men were a group of military men and women from thirteen nations, most of whom volunteered for service in the newly created Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives section, or MFAA. Their job description was simple: to save as much of the culture of Europe as they could during combat.
These men not only had the vision to understand the grave threat to the greatest cultural and artistic achievements of civilization, but then joined the front lines to do something about it.
Iowa Native George Stout played a lead role in this endeavor. George Clooney's character in the movie was based on Stout.
