Considerable Damage at BBF after Burglary

1.3.2021. Unknown villains broke into the office building on Warschauer Straße in Berlin - which houses, among others, the BBF | Library for Research on the History of Education - during the night from Friday to Saturday and caused considerable damage. They destroyed, for example, the drains of washbasins in the toilets and turned on the taps. The water severely affected the newly renovated rooms of the BBF on the floor below. The research library's holdings, including historically important sources, were affected.
