Holocaust of Art
In this outstanding contribution to the history of the National Socialist era in Germany, Jonathan Petropolous reveals how talented, often highly educated artists, gallery dealers, and art critics became part of the Nazi effort to destroy 'degenerate' art created by Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Marc, and many others while promoting 'Germanic Aryan' art and artists. Petropolous offers a detailed (and frightening) history of what happens when 'ordinary' people in the service of Hitler and his hencemen perfered to ignore or abandon moral scruples in pursuit of fame, money, and power.
