Cologne, Germany, Opens New City Archive, 12 Years After Fatal Collapse

Cologne opens new city archive, 12 years after fatal collapse. “The western German city of Cologne on Friday inaugurated its new historical archive, 12 years after a subway construction mishap collapsed the former building.

Two people were killed and irreplaceable historical documents of the 2,000-year-old city were buried in the rubble.”
