Golden tears from trees


What became of the Amber Room? Among the art treasures of Europe stolen by the Nazis in their conquest of the continent during World War 2, the Amber Room’s fate is most mysterious. Some believe that it was permanently lost in a fire at the end of the war, and some believe that it is waiting to be discovered.

But the Russians haven’t waited and are currently nearing the end of their restoration work at the Catherine Palace. Golden memories indeed. Via MetaFilter.
