It's sad to hear that. Are there any organizations or people who work on it?

Hi Vil, all I know are small private initiatives. From time to time there are students who work about a church or a certain subject, but afterwards generally nothing else follows. For the actual Ministry of Culture art, history, archaeology etc. have to serve and support the politics. They have no value by themselves. That means there is no education about the value of these things, no encouragement to protect historical places. By chance it was today that I discovered a book just about this church and now I learnt its not nameless.
