The Monuments Men

Last night I watched The Monuments Men, and there’s one aspect that I’m still thinking about.

At one point in the movie (not a spoiler), there is a summary of everything that was stolen by the Nazis. Thousands of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, train cars, and 3,000 church bells.

Church bells? What was the purpose of stealing church bells? I can’t imagine them being particularly valuable. My guess? It was to signify the end of all religion. The Nazis would conquer everything including God.

Do you agree?
