paradox-song said: Hey:) i really like your blog! are you german? if yes, could you please write the info-text under each picture in english and in german? because my english isn't really good and i'm really interessted in history:)
Sorry, I’m afraid I’m not German. I can try to post info in both languages in the future however. My German is probably worse than your English though!
(Ich fürchte, ich bin nicht deutsch. Ich versuchen kann, in der Zukunft jedoch Informationen in beiden Sprachen zu posten. Mein Deutsch ist wohl schlimmer, als wenn Sie Ihr Englisch!)
In 1940, knowing that France was falling into the hands of the Germans, the workers of the Louvre took action. All 400,000 works were evacuated and sent to the south of France. In secret they transported the priceless paintings and statues, and held by wealthy families in Vichy,where they would remain for five years, only returning at the end of the war.The quick action of the workers without a doubt saved the masterpieces from becoming part of the over 5 million works that were looted by the Nazis during the war.
