Père-Laschaise Cemetery

La Commune de Paris. Tuesday, April 11, 1871. Today in the cemetery of Père-Laschaise* there was the burial of seventy-five persons. Most of them are hardly identifiable and are therefore buried in a "tranchée gratuite," in other words: a mass grave. They are the dead caused by Versailles' attacks against the Commune and those of the National Guard's unfortunate sorties against government troops in recent days.

*In 150 years, it will be the largest cemetery in Paris "intramuros" and one of the most famous in the world welcoming over 3 and a half million visitors.
