Meet the Author: Mary M. Lane

03/25/2020 | 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Writer and journalist Mary M. Lane presents her recent book Hitler's Last Hostages: Looted Art and the Soul of the Third Reich at the Museum. In 2013, the German government confiscated roughly 1,300 works of art from the apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt, the reclusive son of one of Hitler’s primary art dealers, a discovery kept secret by the government for two years. Lane reveals the fate of those works and tells the definitive story of art in the Third Reich and Germany’s ongoing struggle to right the wrongs of the past.
