Statement regarding the fire at Museu Nacional do Brasil

Dear colleagues,

It is with deep regret that we witnessed on September 2 one of our most important museums, the Museu Nacional, located in Rio de Janeiro, taken by the flames, with a huge part of a collection of 20 million items lost to the fire. Probably many of you must have read the news about the great fire, however we would like to talk a little about the importance of the Museum for our History, our Science and our Culture.
