A spokesman for the Silesian regional government said last night that the search for more survivors in the wreckage has been called off.
Rescuers worked throughout the night of 28 January to find people still trapped in the wreckage, but fears grew as temperatures dipped to minus 15 degrees Celsius.
At least 140 people were injured. Some 500 people from across Europe were in the building at the time, attending an exhibition of carrier pigeons.
It was unclear whether snow on the roof contributed to the collapse or whether the accident was the result of structural problems.
