Words and Photos for a Devastated Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

A devastating fire broke out in Notre-Dame cathedral on Monday night, and the world watched in horror as this iconic city monument burned. Thankfully Paris’s brave firefighters were able to extinguish the flames late in the night, and save the structure from complete destruction. We are eternally grateful for their dedication.

Our team at France Media Group is shocked and saddened beyond words about this tragedy. But we have faith that Notre-Dame will be rebuilt, just as President Emmanuel Macron has vowed. International fundraising campaigns have already been announced. (Here is the website where you can make donations.)

To celebrate this great icon, our sister site Bonjour Paris has published “An Homage to Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris” where several contributors have shared their memories and insights.

Dear reader, we would love to hear from you! Please share your thoughts about this symbolic monument. We will be creating a showcase in the magazine in homage to Notre-Dame, and would be honoured to feature your stories and photos. Please send them to the attention of our sister publication, Bonjour Paris: [email protected].

    While we all rejoice that it seems to be only the roof and its timbers which were destroyed, and which can be rebuilt easily (?), Notre-Dame de Paris suffers from a severe number of structural problems. For many years, architects have pointed out that the stone surface of the structure is crumbling and turning to dust. Rebuilding only the roof, without taking this opportunity to rebuild it from the ground up, saving what seems sensible, and reconstructing in the GOTHIC STYLE, to last for at least another 1,000 years, would be the answer to my prayer for the heart-and-soul symbol of Paris to continue to be revered and treasured ALWAYS by EVERYONE !!
