A Jewish member of the "Monuments Men," a team of experts who rescued Nazi-looted artworks during World War II, accepted a medal from his German hometown at the weekend, media reported on Sunday. 

Harry Ettlinger, 88, who had already attended a red-carpet screening of George Clooney's new "The Monuments Men" movie about the group at the Berlin film festival last week, received the so-called Staufer Medal at an art museum in Karlsruhe, southwestern Germany.
