I saw this on BBC News – Mitholz – the tranquil Swiss village facing a time bomb: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-57996485. Longer article. Going to be interesting to see how the Swiss military takes care of the homes for the 10 years the town has to vacate.

Mitholz, population just 170, is at first sight an idyllic place in Switzerland’s beautiful Kander Valley. But its tragic history has come back to haunt it.
The village’s geranium-covered houses are traditional wooden farming chalets, many still with living space for people upstairs, and stalls for farm animals below.
