Ithat suffered..

War has many victims, and the Iraq Museum has

joined the list. Looters broke into the building

and destroyed or carried off hundreds of thousands

of priceless objects. Many of these treasures had

survived centuries of war and changes in leadership.

"Our history was in that building," said Mazen Ahmad

,who sells eggs near the museum. "It was the soul of Iraq."

It wasn't just the building that suffered.

Thousands of antiques, manuscripts and rare

books were also stolen, as well as stone carvings

of ancient royalty, jewelry pottery and some of

history's earliest writings. Some objects date back

10,000 years.

請問..It wasn't just the building that suffered..


句中的..It..代表...that suffered..嗎?

that 代表.. the museum... 嗎?

我還是無法理解..that suffered...的意思..

    這裡的用法,應該是有點類似強調的用法,句型大致為這樣:It is/was S that V

    例句:Bill overheard their conversation last night.,如果要強調是Bill不小心聽到的話,就照上面的句型改成:It was Bill that overheard their conversation last night.


    Not just the building suffered.

    Look at it this way.

    It was John who came to our rescue.

    = It was John. John was the one who came our rescure. Not Mary nor Tom.
