Summary
Item discusses life at the Wiesbaden Collecting Point in Germany, where cultural property and art works were collected and held at the end World War II. In November 1945 the Director of the Collection Point (the author) received a telegram ordering him to send 200 premier German-owned art works to Washington. He and his officers resisted this command with a written protest that became known as the Wiesbaden Manifesto
