THE NATIONAL and cultural heritage organisation Matica Slovenská has published the second volume of a book series that maps the fate of national art works and monuments, the SITA newswire wrote. In the book, Stratené Slovenské Poklady (Lost Slovak Treasures), which is subtitled The Fate of Our Art and Monuments, author Milan Vároš traces art from Slovak churches and museums that was smuggled abroad.
The text is brought to life with 1,500 documentary illustrations, of which most have not been published in Slovakia yet. The author received the Egon Erwin Kisch Prize and the Fund of Literature Award for the first volume of the series, The Fate of German Monuments of Aristocracy and Rulers.
