    1. This was a fascinating book about the plunder of Europe's art by the Nazis. One so often hears about the holocaust and other atrocities against people, that it was interesting to see a fuller part of the overarching plan. The Nazi's destroyed or sold to non-arayans work they considered "degenerate", and kept for themselves, sometimes in personal collections, what they considered to be great art.The author, however, had a bone to pick and that overshadowed the historic aspects of the book. It bec [...]


    2. Which was fantastic and quite enjoyable. Also very informative. Anyone interested in art theft, how art is sold, pillage and how WW2 was the ultimate time to steal great works of art must find this book. I truly enjoyed it.It's really, really good, well written and it made me look for 2 titles : one is already requested in ILL The Faustian Bargain and the second was ordered for the library The Monument Men.A good introduction on the subject of spoiled art during WW2.


    3. This book, tells the story of the breaktrhough investigation and findings of all the art that was stollen by the Nazis. This guy is from Puerto Rico and his research has been only recognized by few experts. It is time that more people read about the guy behind this findings and the truth of what happened and is still happening.


    4. "The story of the systematic pillaging of Jewish-owned artwork during World War II. Between 1939 and 1944, the Nazi occupation of France enabled Germany to confiscate rare works from Jewish art collectors and gallery owners." From the back cover. Many works have not yet been returned though, according to Feliciano, the records exist to accomplish this task.


    5. Interesting book that documents how great works of art were looted from occupied France during WWII. Parts of the book are too detailed for the general interest reader but overall, the book was an easy read on a very interesting topic.


    6. Excellent book for those interested in art and the history of WWII. Gives insight to Hitler and his dreams of being a great art collector. Exposes collaborators and others in the art scene at the time. Opens the reader's eyes to the underhanded methods of the Swiss bankers as art launderers.


    7. Fascinating read and enormously helpful with research for my own book. Shocking subject. Still very controversial.


    8. Very compelling subject, but the format and writing style seemed more like a business report than a good non-fiction book.


    9. This is an extremely interesting book and you get to know a side of the nazis not that very often explored. I give it four stars because the writing is, sometimes, a little bit confuse, but it can be a problem of the portuguese translation.


    10. Hitler loved art and it was one of his goals to return many of the masters to Germany and to set up one of the best museums in the world. In order to do that he pillaged and plundered Europe. This book covers Paris and its stolen art and is based on an article written in France. I knew about the Nazi's agenda to steal art, but I didn't realize how systematic it was. Hitler and Goering were determined to find and send to Germany as much art as possible, most of which was taken from wealthy Parisi [...]


    11. Feliciano is to be thanked for the years of sleuthing behind this book about art thefts during and after WWII. The Nazis were by far the worst of the culprits, but they did not lack for more-than-willing co-conspirators. Indeed, the objects of their greed, many of them, continue to circulate in the profitable world of fine art.However, while the research represented in this book deserves praise and would have constituted a worthy doctoral dissertation, the text itself is dry and lifeless. What m [...]


    12. O livro é muito interessante, na medida em que estuda muito bem a ascensão do nazismo e o seu reflexo na vontade da Alemanha nazi se tornar um portento de arte. A par disso, a paixão ignorante de Hitler e de Goering pelos quadros, histórias de famílias ricas, cultas, despojadas de anos de investimento em arte pelo regime. Para quem estude arte, acho verdadeiramente muito interessante a leitura. Para quem se interessa pelo tema, como eu, de uma forma mais leiga, é interessante para ter uma [...]


    13. A great snow day allowed me to finish up this book from the random bookmarks shelf. It was good if you like the subject matter (Nazi looting of the art world during WWII. That being said it was a lot mor dry than The Rape of Europa and Beautiful loot, both of which I liked better.






    14. This is one of the best books I have ever readt and history lovers would thoroughly enjoy it although everyone would be intrigued by it.
