Mr. Ettinger joins us for a special Adult Forum this Sunday! He was a solder in the United States army during World War II. He spent a year and a half as part of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program (MFAA). The Monuments Men were a group of men and women from thirteen nations. Their job description was simple: to save as much of the culture of Europe as they could during combat.
He was also involved with the making of the movie “The Monuments Men” and was on the set. He contributed his experiences of how he and his fellow art historians saved all the art work, jewelry and statues and returned them to the proper owners.
