    That is a real tragedy... and like the other events mentioned, unlikely to be recovered. Probably straight to the melting pot. Cheers, RickO

    Yes, this is tragic. The museum didn't even have a single security guard or employee hired to walk around or simply be at the building because, of course, they would never lose power.

    This is truly upsetting. I remember when news broke out about the Dresden Green Vault having been looted back in 2019.

    Looking at this thread again, and thinking back on the other similar losses there, it would seem that there should be a major overhaul in security at all such facilities. If not, it will continue. Cheers, RickO
