Extract

On the afternoon of May 14, 1940, the German Luftwaffe bombed the civilian center of Rotterdam in The Netherlands, leaving it in ruins. Seeing the extent of devastation, and threatened with the bombing of other major cities, the Dutch surrendered shortly afterwards. The Netherlands were of strategic importance to Germany, but to Hermann Göring, commander in chief of the Luftwaffe, it was also a prime site for plundering Dutch art. Göring, second in command to Adolf Hitler, was notorious for confiscating or purchasing great art and imagined himself to be a connoisseur.
