From Boston to the battlefields of Europe, a tale of ‘Monuments Men’ - The Boston Globe

From Boston to the battlefields of Europe, a tale of ‘Monuments Men’ - The Boston Globe | Austrailia, Europe, and Africa | Scoop.it
LOS ANGELES — The man who wrote the book on the daring rescue of Nazi-looted artworks put it simply: “We can’t tell the story of ‘The Monuments Men’ and not talk about Boston.” Boston was “so absolutely important” to the success of that little-known but crucial World War II mission, said Robert Edsel. More attention is coming soon, in the form of a new movie out this week starring, co-written, and directed by George Clooney. The roughly 350 men who risked, and sometimes gave, their lives — dubbed by fellow World War II soldiers “the Monuments Men” — saved everything from priceless Old Masters by Rembrandt and Vermeer to religious sculptures, antiquities, and gold hidden away in castles and buried in mines.
DJ and Sammy's insight:

Europe Intellectual: 

Sam and i chose this article because it shows that everything that went on in the 30's throughout the holocaust is still culturally significant today. All the nazi soldiers stole the jewish peoples art and it was up to the "monuments men" to get them back. At the end. Of this article, the view should be able to compare and contrast the movie to what really happened.

Africa Top 10 Problems: Not the ones You were thinking about! | Austrailia, Europe, and Africa | Scoop.it
Africa is not poor. Africa is a rich continent inhabited by poor people. Once we fix the people problem, everything else will fall into place. In this post, I share what I consider to be the top 10 problems affecting the people ability to fix themselves and subsequently take control of their destiny. 1. The Poverty Porn Humanitarian organization like UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, and alike have done more damage to Africa than the marginal positive impact they supposedly have had. In order to raise money for their operations, they have engaged into a "poverty porn" depicting Africa with the most degrading, and humiliating images. African people dignity is not something they cared about. The huge billboard and magazines photos showing Africa at its worst now fill the mind of billions of people around the world, and unfortunately those people can't help but think about Africa only trough those images. (In the same time, those medias won't show the photo of a [...]
