DALLAS (AP) – A group dedicated to finishing the work of World War II’s Monuments Men is betting on a deck of playing cards – and reward money – to help find missing works of art taken by the Nazis. Inspired by the U.S. military’s history of creating playing cards related to missions, the Dallas-based Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art on March 23 announced the creation of the deck focusing on works – including paintings, sculptures and reliquaries – they believe still exist.
