In the double-length second segment, “The Looting of Cambodia,” Anderson Cooper presents the findings of a year-long investigation into what may be history’s greatest art heist. The focus falls on British dealer Douglas Latchford, who orchestrated the theft of thousands of sacred artifacts made of stone, bronze, and gold from religious sites across Cambodia during a period of genocide, civil war, and political turmoil.

These priceless artifacts found their way into the collections of wealthy individuals and prestigious museums worldwide. Now, the Cambodian government is on a mission to reclaim its cultural heritage and bring these stolen treasures back home.
