Grand Duke Visits Eschweiler House Damaged by Fire

The roof and other parts of an old house in the town of Eschweiler were destroyed on Friday night by a fire. The house, which is owned by Luxembourgish author Lambert Schlechter, also housed a private library of thousands of books, many of which were destroyed or at least heavily damaged by the fire. Last night, Grand Duke Henri, who was in Eschweiler for a concert - more on that in a post later on -, paid a spontaneous visit to Schlechter to have a personal look at the damage on site, express his regrets about what has happened and thank the local firemen.
