Cologne Archive Collapses

What a bitter irony that I happen to have chosen a picture (months ago) of Cologne! Here is a link to an article in Der Spiegel (it's in English) about the collapse.,1518,613209,00.html

Two people died in the collapse. How much archival material is permanently lost is hard to say, but there's been extensive water damage, so there's no doubt losses will be significant.
