In the movie, “The Monuments Men”, allied forces put together a special team to reclaim the stolen lost art and treasure of Hitler’s conquests. Because of ‘Nero’s decree from Hitler, in the case where He would be killed or Germany would fall, his forces were to destroy infrastructure and possessions so that no one else would have them.
