The story of the Monuments Men is only part of a much larger story.  In 2013, at the urging of a historian, Baltimore resident Susan Fisher Sullam uncovered hundreds of pages of top secret and classified files that had belonged to her late father detailing the final, harrowing months of World War II.  As a member of General Eisenhower’s staff, Joel Fisher, who spent his early childhood in Baltimore, had kept the memos and papers detailing how Americans located and secured billions of dollars’ worth of gold, silver and currency plundered by the Nazis from the treasuries of occupied Europe.  Her father never discussed it with her, but she was able to piece the story together, which was published in the Washington Post Magazine in June 2014.
