The Orpheus Clock:
The Search for My Family’s Art Treasures Stolen by the Nazis

Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 7:30p.m.

“A remarkable achievement… The Orpheus Clock is an absolute must read.” -- Annie Jacobsen, New York Times bestselling author

“Even readers well familiar with World War II and Holocaust history will find this a fresh and lively read.” -- Christian Science Monitor

The Orpheus Clockis the extraordinary story of a prominent German family and their priceless art collection, the Nazis who robbed them, and a son’s decades-long and continuing quest for justice. Following the death of his father, Simon Goodmanand his family discovered in the 1990s a trove of letters, documents and other correspondence. Goodman’s quest has led to the recovery of hundreds of his family’s possessions and the restoration of their legacy, and has helped to change International policy regarding art restitution. This arresting account of Goodman’s struggle combines the poignant and tragic story of a family with an intricate detective story.
