The Rape of Europa tells the epic story of the systematic theft, deliberate destruction and miraculous survival of Europe’s art treasures during the Third Reich and the Second World War. In a journey through seven countries, the film takes the audience into the violent whirlwind of fanaticism, greed, and warfare that threatened to wipe out the artistic heritage of Europe. The Rape of Europa begins and ends with the story of artist Gustav Klimt’s famed Gold Portrait, stolen from Viennese Jews in 1938, and now the most expensive painting ever sold. Joan Allen narrates this breathtaking chronicle about the battle over the very survival of centuries of Western culture. 117 minutes. $10 per person, includes museum admission. Free for museum members. Please RSVP to Kelly Medlin firstname.lastname@example.org or (954) 262-0227.
