National Library of France

19 April 2021

Dear Mrs Phakeng,

In my quality of President of the National Library of France and on behalf of the library staff, I would like to express my deepest sorrow in the wake of the catastrophy which has struck the University Library and destroyed a large part of South Africa's written heritage.

If we can be of assistance in the future please let me know.
