Summary
When the Louvre closed its doors in 1939 and staff began evacuating its treasures to the chateaux of the Loire countryside, they could not know what the next six years would have in store. As the Germans neared Paris in 1940, the French raced to move the masterpieces still further south, then again and again during the war, crisscrossing the southwest of France. Throughout the German occupation, the Louvre's directors and staff would risk their jobs and in many cases their lives to protect the artworks and the Louvre palace not only from the personal appetites of the Nazi leaders but also from bombing, fire, flood, theft, and the viciousness of the German military reprisals
