A charged biography of a notorious Nazi art plunderer and his career in the postwar art world​ "[Petropoulos] brings Lohse into sharper focus, as a personality and axis point from which to explore a network of art dealers, collectors and museum curators connected to Nazi looting. . . . What emerges from Petropoulos's research is a portrait of a charismatic and nefarious figure who tainted everyone he touched."--Nina Siegal, New York Times "Readers of art history and WWII biographies will appreciate this engrossing deep dive into one of the world's most prolific art looters."--Publishers Weekly Bruno Lohse (1911-2007) was one of the most notorious art plunderers in history. Appointed by Hermann Göring to Hitler's art looting agency in Paris, he went on to help supervise the systematic theft and distribution of more than thirty thousand artworks, taken largely from French Jews, and to assist Göring in amassing an enormous private art collection. By the 1950s Lohse was officially denazified but was back in the art dealing world, offering masterpieces of dubious origin to American museums. After his death, dozens of paintings by Renoir, Monet, and Pissarro, among others, were found in his Zurich bank vault and adorning the walls of his Munich home. Jonathan Petropoulos spent nearly a decade interviewing Lohse and continues to serve as an expert witness for Holocaust restitution cases. Here he tells the story of Lohse's life, offering a critical examination of the postwar art world.

Ructions O'Hare returns in a thriller — based on one of history's greatest unsolved heists — pitting him against the IRA, Interpol, and neo-Nazis . . . When WWII ended, the allies discovered that a huge amount of gold bullion plundered by Nazi Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering had gone missing. Some believed the gold had been hidden in a train box car in Poland. Others that it was secreted in Lake Toplitz in the Austrian Alps. And a few thought it was buried in the Republic of Ireland, which was neutral during the war. When ex-IRA soldier Ructions O'Hare stumbles on a piece of Nazi memorabilia once owned by Goering, he begins to think that those who suspect the gold was in Ireland just might be on to something. But for Ructions to return to Ireland is easier said than done. For a start, the IRA is after him for not paying them a cut from a huge bank robbery he carried out in Belfast. And then there's the Neo-Nazis, who believe that Goering's gold rightfully belongs to them, and who are happy to kill anyone who gets in their way. And as Ructions gathers clues to the gold's location and, as his many adversaries realize he's getting closer, it's as if a noose is tightening around his neck...

Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe, president of the Reichstag and Hitler’s designated successor, Herman Goering was one of most capable – and sinister – leading figures of the Third Reich. He played a major role in smoothing Hitler’s road to power through helping to secure the support of generals, financiers and industrialists, and as creator of the secret police he showed formidable energy in crushing all resistance. As commander of the Luftwaffe, he led the mightiest air force the world had ever seen. As the Second World War drew to a close, however, Goering was a bloated shadow of his former self, he became an increasingly discredited figure, despised by Hitler and ridiculed by his former fellow henchmen. In this classic biography, Manvell and Fraenkel have drawn on interviews with members of Goering’s family, his former associates, his enemies and his servants. His extravagant lifestyle and tastes, his unusual habits and uniforms, his cunning, ambition and casual brutality, are all explored in dramatic detail. The result is a thorough and intimate portrayal of this dangerous and contradictory man and an insightful history of the rise and ultimate collapse of the Third Reich.

Wie reagierte die österreichische Außenpolitik auf den schicksalhaften Jänner 1933 und die Machtergreifung Adolf Hitlers in Deutschland? Wie auf die Ermordung des österreichischen Kanzlers Dollfuß im Juli 1934 durch illegale Nationalsozialisten? Im Wesentlichen lassen sich drei außenpolitische Strategien des Wiener Ballhausplatzes zur Abwehr der nationalsozialistischen Bedrohung durch das Deutsche Reich und zur Wahrung der staatlichen Unabhängigkeit Österreichs feststellen: 1) der italienische Kurs mit einer verstärkten Anlehnung an Italien und Ungarn; 2) die internationale Karte, wobei die diplomatischen Bemühungen in Paris und London zu einer Internationalisierung des Konflikts führen sollten, und schließlich 3) der deutsche Weg, bei dem es zu einer Einigung mit Deutschland auf bilateraler Basis kommen sollte. Während diverse Mitteleuropa- und Donauföderationspläne die politischen Lösungsversuche der österreichischen Frage im Sinne einer Internationalisierung des Problems beherrschten, kam auch immer wieder die Frage einer Restauration der Habsburger in Österreich aufs Tapet. Vor allem in Belgrad und Prag gab es geradezu eine Restaurationsphobie. Von Seiten Deutschlands war es der Gesandte Franz von Papen, der mit betonter Gelassenheit in Zeiten heftiger Kontroversen an seine Mission einer Normalisierung der österreichisch-deutschen Beziehungen heranging. Ausgehend vom Entwurf eines Modus Vivendi zwischen Österreich und Deutschland über ein geheimes Gentlemen's Agreement, das die gegenseitigen Ziele dieser deutsch-österreichischen Verständigung skizzierte, fand schließlich am 11. Juli 1936 die Unterzeichnung des deutsch-österreichischen Normalisierungs- und Freundschaftsabkommens durch Bundeskanzler Schuschnigg und Franz von Papen statt. Höchst unterschiedlich waren die ausländischen Reaktionen auf das Juliabkommen: lebhafte Zustimmung in Italien und Ungarn, skeptische Erleichterung in Grssbritannien und Skandinavien, aber deutliches Unbehagen in Frankreich und den Staaten der Kleinen Entente. DasTrojanische Pferd stand jedenfalls nun vor dem Ballhausplatz und richtete seinen Blick auf den nahen Heldenplatz, denn das österreichisch-deutsche Abkommen vom 11. Juli 1936 bedeutete einen weiteren wesentlichen Schritt in Richtung des Totalverlusts von Österreichs aussenpolitischer Souveränität.--
