La Conciergerie

La Conciergerie, Paris from George on Vimeo.

These are images from the “conciegerie” , the (in) famous site where Marie Antoinette and several other French faced the “Revolutionary Tribunal” – and their tragic fates where decided. In more recent times, it has become the set of many period pieces and movies. These aspects combined make a visit to the museum a glum depressing reminder of the now ennobled savagery of the Revolutionary tribunal – and evidence of how far France has moved from its past and continues to create a new image of itself and its future.
