The Allies knew of Altaussee thanks to a toothache. Two months earlier, Posey was in the ancient city of Trier in eastern Germany with Kirstein and needed treatment.
The son-in-law told them the location of Goering's collection as well as Hitler's stash at Altaussee. Hitler claimed Altaussee as the perfect hideaway for loot intended for his Linz museum.
The complex series of tunnels had been mined by the same families for 3, years, as Stout noted in his journal. Inside, the conditions were constant, between 40 and 47 degrees and about 65 percent humidity, ideal for storing the stolen art.
The deepest tunnels were more than a mile inside the mountain, safe from enemy bombs even if the remote location was discovered. The Germans built floors, walls, and shelving as well as a workshop deep in the chambers.
From through early , a stream of trucks transported tons of treasures into the tunnels. When Stout arrived there on May 21, , shortly after hostilities ended, he chronicled the contents based on Nazi records: 6, paintings, 2, drawings or watercolors, prints, pieces of sculpture, pieces of arms and armor, 79 baskets of objects, cases of objects thought to be archives, 78 pieces of furniture, tapestries, 1,, cases apparently books or similar, and cases contents completely unknown.
The Nazis had built elaborate storage shelving and a conservation workshop deep within the mine, where the main chambers were more than a mile inside the mountain.
Stout also noted that there were plans for the demolition of the mine. All military transport and communication facilities, industrial establishments and supply depots, as well as anything else of value within Reich territory, which could in any way be used by the enemy immediately or within the foreseeable future for the prosecution of the war, will be destroyed.
He moved eight crates into the mines in April. They were marked "Marble - Do Not Drop," but actually contained 1, pound bombs. On May 3, days before Posey and Kirstein entered, the local miners removed the crates with the large bombs.
By the time Eigruber learned, it was too late. Two days later, the small charges were fired, closing the mine's entrances, sealing the art safely inside.
By June 24, Stout extended the workday to 4 a. Communication was difficult; he was often unable to contact Posey. There weren't enough trucks for the trip to the collecting point, the former Nazi Party headquarters, in Munich, miles away.
And the ones he got often broke down. There wasn't enough packing material. Finding food and billets for the men proved difficult.
Their work continued through , by which time they had rescued, preserved and returned five million pieces of art and other cultural artifacts to their rightful owners.
In spite of the painstaking work of the Monuments Men, their mission is still far from complete nearly 70 years after the fall of Nazi Germany.
Hundreds of thousands of plundered documents and artworks—including pieces by Monet, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Rodin and Botticelli—remain at large.
The Monuments Men Foundation is continuing the search for the lost treasures in addition to its work in keeping alive the legacy of an unlikely band of war heroes.

Meanwhile, Simone reconsiders when Granger shows her the Nero Decree , which orders the destruction of all German possessions if Hitler dies or Germany falls, and sees him return a painting looted from a Jewish family to its rightful place in their empty home.
She provides a comprehensive ledger she has compiled that provides valuable information on the stolen art and the rightful owners.
Even as the team learns that the artwork is being stored in various mines and castles, it also learns that it must now compete against the Soviet Union, which is seizing artwork from its occupation zone as war reparations.
Meanwhile, Colonel Wegner is systematically destroying whole art caches. Eventually, the team has some success, as it discovers at least one mine hiding over 16, art pieces.
In addition, the team captures the entire gold reserves of the Nazi German national treasury. Finally, as the war ends in May , the team finds a mine in Austria that appears to have been demolished, and the Soviets will be there in hours.
Discovering that the entrances were actually blocked by the locals to prevent the Nazis from destroying the contents, the team evacuates as much artwork as possible, including sculptures, the Ghent Altarpiece , and the Madonna and Child , before the Soviets arrive.
Afterwards, Stokes reports back to President Truman that the team has recovered vast quantities of artwork and various other culturally significant items.
As he requests to stay in Europe to oversee further searching and restoration, Truman asks Stokes if his efforts were worth the lives of the men he lost.
Stokes says they were. Truman then asks if, thirty years from then, anyone will remember that these men died for a piece of art. In the final scene, set in , the elderly Stokes replies "Yeah", while he takes his grandson to see Michelangelo's Madonna.
The Monuments Men is an American-German co-production of Columbia Pictures in association with 20th Century Fox and Studio Babelsberg.
Principal photography began in early March , at the Babelsberg Studios in Potsdam , Germany, in the Berlin-Brandenburg region, and the Harz.
The mines around Bad Grund , particularly the Wiemannsbucht and the Grube Hilfe Gottes, were used in the filming of outdoor scenes.
Other outdoor locations were the towns of Lautenthal , Clausthal-Zellerfeld , Goslar , Halberstadt , Merseburg , and Osterwieck.
Some of the scenes, including flights and American war base footage, were filmed at Imperial War Museum Duxford , Cambridgeshire, UK.
The film was originally set to be released on December 18, ,  and a trailer was released on August 8, The film was screened on February 7, at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.
The Monuments Men received mixed reviews from film critics. The website's critical consensus reads, "Its intentions are noble and its cast is impressive, but neither can compensate for The Monuments Men ' s stiffly nostalgic tone and curiously slack narrative.
Peter Travers in Rolling Stone Magazine gave it 3 out of 4 stars, noting that while some of the dialogue and emotions seemed inauthentic, the physical production and cinematography were "exquisite," with shooting done on locations in Germany and England.
He added, "Clooney [as director] feels there's much to be learned from these unsung art warriors The Monuments Men is a movie about aspiration, about culture at risk, about things worth fighting for.
I'd call that timely and well worth a salute. Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times called the film an " Historian Alex von Tunzelmann , writing for The Guardian , noted several historical faults and said of the plot, "If you're getting the sense that the film is episodic and poorly structured, unfortunately you'd be right", and "There are far too many characters, so the screenplay splits them up into little groups and sends them off on various errands.
Some of these are more exciting than others — but they do not add up to a satisfying plot. A TV series might have been a better vehicle for the "monuments men" stories than a feature film The story is fascinating, but this film's good intentions are hampered by its lack of pace, direction, tone and properly fleshed-out characters.
The film is based on real events, but the names of all characters were changed, and a number of further adjustments were made to the historical facts in the interests of drama.
During the Nazi period, a huge number of European art treasures pillaged by the Germans had been stored in the Altaussee salt mine near the town of Bad Aussee.
In the film, it is stated that 'local miners' had blown up the mine to prevent the contents being destroyed. In a British Special Operations Executive mission, codenamed Bonzos and led by Albrecht Gaiswinkler , was responsible for saving the looted art stored in Austrian salt mines.
These had been parachuted into the Aussee area, where he raised a force of around men, armed them with captured German weapons, and spent the last weeks and months of the war harassing local German forces.
When the Americans arrived, his information helped them capture several prominent Nazis. He and his colleagues had captured the salt mine, prevented the destruction of the artworks held there, and were able to hand over "a number of Nazi treasure hoards, including a good copy of the Mona Lisa  which is subject of debate  and the Austrian Imperial Crown Jewels ".
Other artworks rescued included Hubert and Jan van Eyck 's Ghent Altarpiece. Nigel Pollard of Swansea University awarded the film only two stars out of five for historical accuracy.
The real organisation was never a big one a few dozen officers at most , but the film reduces it to just seven men to personalise the hunt for the looted art: five Americans, one British officer, the first to be killed off Hugh Bonneville and a Free French officer, marginalising the British role in the establishment of the organisation.

View All Critic Reviews Feb 24, Underrated feel good buddy comedy that has some older Allied gents trying to save art masterpieces from the clutches of greedy opportunistic Nazi types.
While uneven this Clooney love child has it's moments. Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. Mar 30, The premise is fun, making you think of 70s WW2 caper movies.
I don't know how they managed to combine such a fantastic cast and yet make every single character and actor feel underused.
The decision to split up the team didn't help. The direction and look of the film are great and there are glimpses of what could have been. But the plot remains somewhat undecided, sometimes hinting at the terrors of war while being entirely unexciting at the same time.
Entertaining but also a missed opportunity. Jens S Super Reviewer. Jun 05, Not bad. I know the point that this film is trying to make, but I don't agree.
I feel that art is very valuable, especially in a cultural sense, but most art is definitely not worth the risks that the characters go through in this film.
The Monuments Men argues that many human lives, potentially losing battles to the Nazis, and almost stirring up conflicts with the Russians are all worth it if you can save a few pieces of art.
Hell, one of the characters dies saving a fucking painting. This is where I didn't get the movie. You're going to honestly tell me that an old piece of canvas with paint on it is worth risking human lives over?
Fuck no. It's not even like they were trying to save the Mona Lisa or the statue of David or something, though it doesn't make much of a difference to me.
Okay, rant over. Anyway, this is a decent film, despite all the stupid points it tries to get across. Stephen S Super Reviewer.
Feb 16, Not bad but not too great either. With the subject matter and that cast this should have been so much better.
See all Audience reviews. Walter Garfield: The army may not care about art, but they sure as shit care about gold.
Claire Simone: Will you stop speaking French? James Granger: If it wasn't for us, you'd be speaking German.
