70 summers ago, my grandfather, James J. Rorimer served in World War II as a Monuments Man searching for Hitler’s stolen art. This summer, I am retracing his footsteps – from historic battlefields in Normandy to castles and salt mines in Germany. Follow me “Monuments Girl” as I discover this story in person!
Fun Fact: At the premiere of The Monuments Men movie in February 2014, I’m wore a dress that belonged to my grandfather’s sister, (my great aunt). See my post entitled “You took my sister, I’m taking your apartment” for the rest of the story!
