A painful project for France: a museum on the ravages of terrorism

France has lost almost 300 people and had more than 1,000 injured in more than 50 terrorist attacks in the last ten years. The country is planning a new museum to memorialize the suffering terrorism causes.

“The very fact that we are creating a memorial museum while the phenomenon of terrorism has no chance of vanishing in the years to come is a way of showing our capacity to take a step back,” head of the project, French historian Henry Rousso, told Gaëlle Fournier of the New York Times.

The mueseum will not be limited to France or to the last decade, but will have exhibits, films, and events covering worldwide terrorist attacks.  A permanent exhibit will focus on the history of terrorism in France, dating back to the plot to kill Napoleon.
