Regarding the stained glass…if you have ever seen Chartres Cathedral you know how unworldly the stained glass is. A jewel box.

Before WWII they took every…single…piece…of…glass out of those windows and hardly broke one piece. That glass goes back to 1195.

If they can take all of the glass out of Chartres Cathedral they can salvage every tiny piece possible from Notre Dame.

Also before WWII… some of the assistant curators at the Louvre boxed up EVERYTHING and sent it into hiding. They knew what the Nazis were doing to museums and art galleries in other countries, knew they were on the way to Paris, and wanted them to find empty rooms.

Truckload after truckload left Paris in the middle of the night, going to played-out copper mines (low-temperature underground storage), hidden storage compartments behind wine cellars at grand estates, catacombs under monasteries, etc.

After the war… all of it was returned. Every single piece. Nothing lost, nothing damaged.
