Meet Harry Ettlinger -- a real World War II "Monuments Man" -- at the Marlboro Library on Monday, July 14 at 2 p.m.
This event is free but tickets are required, and are limited to 2 tickets per family. Pick up your free tickets at the Marlboro Library, 1 Library Court and Wyncrest Drive, beginning July 7.
As a soldier in the United States Army during World War II, Ettlinger spent a year and a half as part of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program, nicknamed the "Monuments Men," whose mission it was to save cultural treasures from the frontlines and return looted artworks to rightful owners.
The unit became famous decades later, first with the Monuments Men book by Robert M. Edsel, and then with the movie released earlier this year starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman.
