WWII letter found in Louis XV desk at Versailles
Published on January 12th, 2012 | by Admin0
The letter, released this week by the chateau, details restoration work on the desk during the war. The restorer says he wrote the note after he finished the work – just as Paris was being liberated from the Nazis in August 1944.
The letter was found in one of the desk’s many small drawers, which can be opened only by a complex mechanical system of secret buttons and locks considered cutting-edge in its day.
