Collapse of Cologne (Germany) Archives Building
Cologne’s six-story archives building collapsed at 2pm on Tuesday, March 3rd, burying in rubble manuscripts by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Here is an account of the incident from The TimesOnline:
“There was even less warning of the collapse of the building than would have been given during a nuclear attack. Workers on the rooftop heard a cracking noise and immediately alerted the 26 people using the archives at the time. Less than three minutes later later, the building was flat.”
