Just as Nazi Germany appropriated works of art – paintings, sculptures and antiques – from all over Europe in 1939 and 1940, so the Soviet army set up “trophy brigades” to transport the same works of art, and many more, to Moscow and Leningrad in 1945. Stolen Treasure sets out to reveal how they did this and what happened to these works of art.
