Some priceless relics and works of art were saved from the inferno raging through 850-year old Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris by a “human chain” formed by the firefighters. Two were injured. As the medieval roof and spire collapsed, a 100-meter crane took 16 copper statues depicting apostles and evangelists from the roof. The two medieval bell towers immortalized in Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the three exquisite rose windows and the vast organ were also saved. Donations are pouring in from France and other countries for the restoration project, which the specialists expect to take decades, after dismissing President Emmanuel Macron’s pledge to restore the cathedral to its former beauty in five years.
