In 1937 the Nazi regime held two exhibitions in Munich: one to stigmatize "degenerate art," and one, personally curated by Hitler, to glorify "classic art."

Narrated by Toni Servillo (star of Oscar-winner
The Great Beauty), Hitler vs. Picasso and the Others is an incredible journey through five exhibitions, displaying masterpieces by Botticelli, Klee, Matisse, Monet, Chagall, Renoir, and Gauguin. Linked to each exhibition are moving stories of those who witnessed the systematic destruction and looting of the day-from the Bernheimer family, who were forced to barter their freedom, to "Hitler's dealer," Cornelius Gurlitt, known to have hidden away some of the most priceless art treasures of the century.

Revealing the Nazi obsession with art, Hitler vs. Picasso and the Others offers viewers a rare look at condemned works that have finally come to light.
