Hitler had decreed that if he died and the war was lost, nearly 5 million pieces of stolen art were to be destroyed. -In an effort to thwart the Nazis' intent, President Roosevelt, with the support of General Eisenhower, created the MFAA (Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives) unit in 1943, and tasked them with the job of rescuing and protecting Europe's art masterpieces. Ultimately, more than 300 men and women worked in the MFAA between 1943 and 1951, -returning thousands of cultural items that had been looted or displaced during the war.
