Notre-Dame: A symbol of French resilience

As Paris, and much of the world, continues to reel after the massive fire broke out at Notre-Dame, we explore what the cathedral means to the French. Notre-Dame is much more than a place of worship and a popular tourist destination, it’s part of the heart and soul of the capital and a symbol of an eternal Paris. While it awaits repair, the charred structure has become an emblem of resilience and France’s capacity to bounce back after tragedy.
