A Polish-American art collector comes across four striking drawings while browsing an online auction.
He believes they share a remarkable resemblance to the work of America's most influential political cartoonist, Arthur Szyk.
Could these drawings be the earliest known work of the man whose illustrations helped persuade America to fight the Nazis in World War II?
History Detectives heads to the San Francisco Bay Area and to Washington, D.C. to learn more about this influential artist, whose work inspired Eleanor Roosevelt to call him "a one man army against Hitler" and who led Hitler to put a price on his head.
