HUNTING NAZI TREASURE
8 X 60
Hunting Nazi Treasure is not a series about the same old WWII battles and generals. It’s about the systematic looting of an entire continent, and provides new insights into the greedy motivations of top Nazis like Hitler and Goering, and explores how culture and the world’s most beautiful things are targets during times of war.
The story is relevant today because hundreds of thousands of treasures looted by the Nazis are still missing, including a $100 million painting by Italian master Raphael, a $2 billion dollar hoard of stolen Italian gold, and the legendary Amber Room from the Catherine Palace in Russia. These are the last prisoners of the Nazis.
Into these confounding, historically significant “cold cases” comes Hunting Nazi Treasure, a globe-trotting real-life investigation series on HISTORY, featuring a team of history-minded treasure hunters, working out of the Dallas-based Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art.
Coming MAY 1 at 10/9c to AMERICAN HEROES CHANNEL.
