Vandalism of Marville Ossuary

Further proof that people are bad: I got an email today from Syndicat at Marville, France–their charnel house was one of the ones included in my book. Someone broke in last night and destroyed all the old skull boxes on the altar table and smashed many of the skulls. Before and after photo below. The people in the town are extremely upset. Those who have read the book might remember that the skull boxes are an old French tradition for honoring the dead, and the only place they existed in large number in good condition was at Marville. But apparently no longer.
