To Whom It May Concern:

As you may know, the heirs of Palais Stoclet have just decided to put the Palais up for sale! For 25million eu. This appalling news should be made known to all docomomo members and to cultural institutions that would safeguard against such profiteering. Perhaps a consortium of institutiions led by the European Union itself could persuade the
heirs to take a tax benefit and much less money in exchange for stewardship of this modern masterpiece.

Yours sincerely,
