The Screen & Talk event includes the screening of 'A collection of art and blood, the Goering catalogue ' followed by a Q&A panel with Jean-Marc Dreyfus, co-writer of the documentary. During the war, Hermann Goering, Hitler’s right-hand man, set up for personal ends a gigantic business of spoliation of works of art belonging to thousands of Jewish families. These lootings were conscientiously noted in a catalogue, an archive that came out of oblivion in 2015. Carried out like a real police investigation, the film takes us to the four corners of the world to search for witnesses, archives and traces of a story that does not fade. The event also forms part of the Northern UK Jewish Studies Partnership's annual research collaboration and postgraduate training workshop. The screening will be online, Thurs 10 June 2021, 5.45pm. Film is French with English subtitles, Q&A session is in English.
