The Monuments Men
retrieved the greatest private art collection
stolen by Hitler and the Nazis
because no war should
eclipse our humanity.
The War of the Buttons (French)
confirms how closely
mimic our imperfections
master our virtue.
As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me (So weit die Füße tragen) (German)
speaks to the resolve
of one German POW
his obstacles and setbacks
and how he reclaimed his life.
