Description

The Picpus cemetery was created during the most tormented days of the French Revolution. This cemetery contains a mass grave with victims guillotined between 14 June and 27 July 1794, at the Place de la Nation. Since June 1802, this cemetery is a property of the family members of these victims. And even today, only their descendants can be buried at the Picpus cemetery. Photo Credit © Wikipedia/Tangopaso
