Afghanistan: A ‘monuments woman’ whose mission is to save the arts and culture

Many people first learned about the Monuments Men of World War II by reading Robert M. Edsel’s book about them, or seeing the 2014 film “Monuments Men.”

Of course there were many heroic women who also helped protect the cultural treasures of Europe from Hitler, Goering and others.

Everyone was wearing masks, and the overall scene featured more organization and less cheerful hubbub than in previous years.
