Join historian and Goering’s Man in Paris author Jonathan Petropoulos for a close look at one of the most notorious art plunderers in history. Appointed by Hermann Göring to the Nazis’ special art looting agency in Paris, Dr. Bruno Lohse (1911–2007) supervised the systematic theft of over 30,000 art objects taken from French Jews.

Petropoulos, who serves as an expert witness for Holocaust restitution cases, spent nearly a decade interviewing Lohse, investigating the art dealer’s networks and the fate of looted works thought to be in his possession.
