Paris Attack’s Discreet Memorial

On my way to Canal Saint Martin, I exited the metro République by the north exit on the Esplanade André Tollet. I was met by one of the new plaques to the memory of the January and November victims in Paris, Montrouge and Saint-Denis. The Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, unveiled the Paris attacks memorial plaque January 10, 2016.

A small grouping of memorials, candles and flowers decorate this small plot discreetly placed away from the plaza center. The notes, candles, notices of opinion or even a plea for information for a lost sixteen-year old boy cover the main République monument below the bronze statue of Marianne, which symbolizes the French Republic.
