    I hope something remains. I remember when I visited Nuremberg, and was quite amazed at how they had restored the city. Let's see what happens.

    Unfortunately, so much of the support infrastructure is wooden. Sharing your optimism, though. Would love to see enough left to work with.

    Same.

    This makes me terribly sad.

    This is horrible to watch, heartbreaking. There is some positive news in that they were able to save some of the art/relics from the cathedral - and in addition, due to the renovation project, some statues (12 apostles and 4 evangelists, famous copper statues I think....) had been removed just days earlier.

    Still, this building is irreplaceable.

    horrible, horrible news. Watching the video of the spire falling down in flames brought tears to my eyes.
