FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Scholars grieve loss of priceless antiquities in Cape Town fire” – below is their description.
It was no ordinary #library. The University of #CapeTown’s Jagger Reading Room, destroyed by a runaway #fire this week, was a beacon of African history and intellect.
