- This is not just a building, it is a symbol. Not just in Paris, but in France. It is not just a church, it is a piece of heritage and a piece of history.
- the Generation after generation of frenchmen grew up with Notre Dame. They have visited the school, they have read the Victor Hugo novel 'the Hunchback of Notre Dame', otherwise they certainly certainly seen the Disney cartoon.
- And in historietimerne they have been through Napoleon's coronation inside the church. The here framework the French at all scales, says Stéphanie Surrugue, who has a French father and lives in Paris.

the Reason for the fire is yet unknown, and on Tuesday morning at 08.30 ongoing fires still.
the Flames spread Monday rapidly, and although it managed to rescue the two bell towers, consumed the flames sprouted and most of the roof structure.
the Cathedral took nearly 200 years to construct and was completed in the year 1345. It has thus survived major upheavals in French society.
Notre Dame has watched over the French in more than 800 years. In France is the cathedral of the feminine. She has survived great wars, and she has survived some of the biggest crises in France.
- Many of the greatest events in the history of France relate in one way or the other to Notre Dame.
On the way is the cathedral a red thread through the history of France, and it has an almost indescribably great historical significance for the French, says Stéphanie Surrugue.
