World War II was one of the darkest chapters in human history. Millions of lives were cruelly and callously taken, families were separated, and the world became a battleground filled with blood shed, violence, and hatred. Some of the lesser-known casualties of Nazi Germany were the thousands of precious artworks that officers and foot soldiers stole. However even in the midst of so much evil, one woman was brave enough to resist the poachers. And, the entire time, the thieves had no idea she was watching.

Rose Valland had perfected the art of hiding in plain sight. She worked closely with people she fundamentally despised and held her tongue as she watched injustices occur around her. She let others believe she was a benign, simple woman. But she was merely lying in wait.
