Guided Tour of Paris Commune at Père Lachaise cemetery : History

The Père Lachaise is the largest cemetery in central Paris and one of the most famous cemeteries in the world…

During Paris Commune civil war in May 1871, the Père Lachaise was the scene of a bloody battle due to its strategic location on a hill. The Communards set up their artillery in the heart of the cemetery, but they were quickly surrounded by Thier’s “Versaillais” (soldiers of the official government, ruled by Thiers) and by the Prussian soldiers.

The 147 survivors were shot on May 28, 1871, in front of a wall, now called “mur des Fédérés” (Communards’ wall).

M. Saint James (USA) :
« I had a great time with Mr. Laporte discovering the places and artifacts of the Commune. He was professional and charming and kept me engaged with history the whole time. I especially enjoyed sharing lunch and talking of cultural differences and the effects of historical perspective.
Thanks for making this experience so easy. »
