The Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Financing Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing on how ISIS* is profiting from its theft and looting of antiquities, artifacts, and other cultural materials. The hearing also explored the terrorist group’s destruction of cultural symbols it finds inconsistent with its ideology. Witnesses included the director of the U.S. Committee of the Blue Shield, whose mission is to protect international cultural property during periods of armed conflict, and the author of the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History that was adapted into a motion picture.

* The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or DAISH/DAESH in Arabic is a militant group that has called itself the Islamic State. close
