Notre-Dame de Reims: The other cathedral that rose from the ashes

The reconstruction of another Gothic cathedral in France, after its destruction in WWI, is an inspiration for rebuilding the iconic Parisian Notre Dame.

    Rebuilding after Monday's disaster is expected to be long and costly.

    But another famous French cathedral, strikingly similar in its Gothic architecture, has proven it is possible to rise from the ashes.
