Focusing particularly on the museum’s occupation by Nazi forces following the summer of 1940, Francofonia tells the story of two remarkable men, Louvre director Jacques Jaujard and Nazi officer Franz Wolff-Metternich. First enemies then collaborators, their alliance was the driving force behind the preservation of the museum’s treasures in the face of untold destruction throughout the rest of the world.
