"Désolé mon fils, mais c'est pas tous les jours que Notre-Dame brûle", dit un père à son bébé qui s'impatiente, à deux mètres d'une femme en larmes, soufflant "faut qu'ils fassent quelque chose ! faut qu'ils fassent quelque chose !" #notredame

This is very, very bad 😢 Notre-Dame’s gothic architecture has a certain Je Ne Sais Quoi that can not be duplicated nor replaced, it has stood for 856 years, if all is lost, it will be one of the worst historical destructions in recent memory.
 
Just arrived in Ireland and met with this tragic news. I’m a Medievalist. I mourn for people, animals, pain, suffering. But a building like this- a heart of history, a point of passions, a cultural conduit. How do you even start to mourn for something like this?! Tragic.......
 
Our thoughts are with @PompiersParis tackling #NotreDameFire & the whole of Paris. Stay safe

EN DIRECT | Incendie de #NotreDame de Paris >Notre journaliste @JeanBirnbaum est sur place, tout comme @pibzedog et @RaphaelleBacque
 
History is indeed being made in the most terrible, heart-rending way twitter.com/jeanbirnbaum/s…
 
This actually brought me to tears. This is such an important piece in Art History I’m crushed
 
Esmeralda! Give some water Esmeralda. Home of Quasimodo is on fire. As if the devouring age of unimaginable has begun. This is simply... devastating. #NotreDame

#notredame I am heartbroken centuries of beauty and history. I hope everybody is safe. The Crown of Thorns and so many relics.
 
Tristeza infinita #NotreDame incendiándose.
 
Olamaz, çok etkileyici bir yapıydı çok üzücü 😞
 
'I'm so sorry my son but it's not everyday that Notre Dame burns,' a father says to his impatient son, while two meters away a woman in tears, cries, 'they must do something! do something!'

Que horror, tanto arte, historia, belleza destruidos 😔
 
I can’t believe this is happening...all that history, artwork...just gone
Thank you to those firefighters risking their lives to save what they could.
 
.... y llora Victor Hugo, y con él aquellos que subimos a las torres de Notre Dame en busca de Paris.
Qué pena no ser del todo conscientes de que algo bello puede no durar para siempre. #NotreDame
 
Notre-Dame survived the French Revolution and WWII

But not 21st century de-Christianized France
 
Holy crap. 😢 this is a huge tragedy. 😭
 
Reminds me of 9-11. LIVE. Who is sending a message? Who is the addressee?
 
Notre-Dame se quema por los cuatro costados. En esas llamas arde nuestra civilización
 
 
 
This cathedral carried relics of saints, including a piece of Jesus’s crown of thorns, a piece of the cross he was nailed to, and at least 30 sculptures. Completely gone and destroyed....Paris, je suis très desole ❣️#notredamecathedral #PrayForParis
 
 
This makes me suuuper :(
So much history burning.
 
 
At this moment, it doesn’t matter whether you’re British or European, Remainer or Leaver, Christian or not. It’s heartbreaking.
 
In reply to @JeanBirnbaum
I’m not religious I’m far from it but seeing this beautiful cathedral up in flames is very upsetting!
 
No entiendo como esto puede ser motivo de alegría para algunos.

Estamos viendo a un monumento histórico tangible, volverse polvo.

Las futuras generaciones solo leeran sobre ella y la podrán apreciar en los libros de historia
 
Estoy absolutamente desolado. Notre Dame. Una de las maravillas del siglo XII, que sobrevivió a mil guerras y a las dos Guerras Mundiales, se está yendo delante de nuestros ojos. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭#NotreDame
 
By far the worst images of the #NotreDamedeParis fire.
A priceless European jewel is being decimated in real time.
 
Woah! It looks like Paris got ahold of my unreleased mixtape!
 
ノートルダムが燃えてる。。。

I’m on a bus and I’m weeping and I want to shout out to tell everyone but I think they would think I’m crazy. This is such a massive thing to happen. My heart goes out to Parisians
 
كتدرائية نوتردام التاريخية في باريس اتحرقت 😨
 
 
Terrible. Espérons de tout cœur que l'on puisse reconstruire #NotreDame
 
Sending love to Paris 💔
 
What a tragedy! Heartbreaking to see so much history, genius, and beauty going up in flames...thankful for the opportunity to have seen it in person, truly nothing quite like it - took my breath away the first time I walked inside😩💔
 
In reply to @JeanBirnbaum
So sad. My heart is with the French and Parisians as we mourn the loss of one of History.
 
 
In reply to @JeanBirnbaum
Mon coeur pleure. Quelle perte pour l'humanité!!
 
Any loss of history is absolutely tragic. I hope they can save it before it’s completely destroyed
 
In reply to @JeanBirnbaum
Awful how sad.... history being destroyed before our eyes 💔
 
 
 
Comment ne pas pleurer devant de telles images...
 
Lots of horrible things happen in this world and we keep on living, but this footage does hurt me quite a bit. I think of medieval stonemasons and carpenters, their sense of beauty. I also think about all the churches burned, looted and razed in countries my ancestors came from.
 
Incendie de Notre Dame : Qui peut expliquer pourquoi les pompiers n'utilisent pas des hélicoptères porteurs de bombes à eau comme pour les incendies de forêts ? En raison des trésors internes qui risqueraient d'être détruits per l'eau ?
 
Tres triste...C’est tragique!!!
 
Płonie jak...zapałka! Znika w oczach. Skala pożaru i tempo rozprzestrzeniania ognia niesamowite i ...podejrzane! Paryż bez Katedry Notre-Dame? Nikt sobie tego nie wyobraża. Nie, to niemożliwe!
 
 
 
Omg I’m devastated???? 😭

Church bells are ringing here in Seattle in sympathy for the people of France at your tragic loss. The world grieves with you.
 
What a heart breaking thing to happen to a monument full of beauty #NotreDame
 
One of the most beautiful buildings with priceless artefacts & features.
#NotreDameOnFire
 
حريق بكاتدرائية نوتردام .... باريس
 
Nooooooo 😭😭😭😭💔💔💔
 
Au moins une des rosaces d'un transept a sauté. Le feu commence à descendre dans la nef.
 
 
it’s so heartbreaking to literally watch a crucial part of art history, architecture, and engineering collapse
 
I’m truly on the edge of tears watching this magnificent building burn. My heart goes out to the people of #France and #Paris - #NotraDame 💔😢🇫🇷
 
Notre-Dame yanıyor 😰
 
Serce się kroi. Tak symbolicznie się kończy cywilizacja chrześcijańska we Francji.
 
 
 
My heart just shattered
 
Alltid smärtsamt att se när något ur vårt gemensamma kulturarv förstörs.
 
 
هذه المشاهد بل أضعافا منها حرقت ودمرت معالم سوريه الأثريه التي يعود تاريخها لآلاف السنين،وكان وراء هذه الأفعال الشنيعه الناتو ورأس الأفعى اليهود
 
In reply to @JeanBirnbaum
Triste. Tellement triste. C est quasi surréal de la regarder brûler sans qu'on ne puisse rien faire apparemment
 
So sad to see such beauty in flames.
 
This is so heartbreaking :(
I was there a year ago... praying all are safe and that they can save this beautiful building #NotreDame
 
I am finding it hard to put this loss into words. The very purpose of gothic architecture was to be closer to the divine, to elevate humanity to the highest place possible. This has stood for over 800ys as a testament to the ingenuity of humanity. This is a terrible loss.
 
Holy shit. So sad to see this recount of this insanity.
 
Oh my god 😭 I hope they manage to save it.
 
 
 
An 800 year old building that survived through the Crusades, the Mongol Empire, the Hundred Years War, both World Wars and so much more just to burn down on a random Monday in April. This is devastating.
 
 
😱 mais quelle horreur..
 
 
Esto me pone muy triste.
 
 
Absolutely devastated watching these horrifying scenes from #Paris. #NotreDame is iconic & magnificent & is of such importance to France & to all Christians across the world. To have survived world wars and to end like this is heart-breaking. Prayers with Paris & France.
 
Na bank brakuje jakiejś ostrej unijnej dyrektywy antypożarowej... 😰😰😰🇪🇺🇪🇺
 
250 years to build and two hours to burn down. So sad. #NotreDame
 
I am crying this is absolutely heartbreaking
 
Hoy hemos perdido uno de los lugares más bellos del mundo. Me he quedado muy triste.

Probably started by someone that drives a Tacoma
 
Hard to process the reports coming in from Notre Dame. Hopefully there’ll have been no loss of life.
 
Heartbreaking to see this.

I'm trying to think of a comparable landmark in America (to contextualize this event for those who haven't visited this gorgeous church), and, honestly... we don't have one. It predates this entire nation by 600 years.
 
 
単なる歴史的遺産ではなく人々の信仰の拠りどころであるわけだし、1人の建築オタクとしても胸が痛む。法隆寺(1949年に金堂焼失)では焼けた柱や壁画などが、じつは今も保管棟に大切に保存されている。もし日本の経験が少しでも役立つことがあればいいなと願う。
 
Ens ha colpit el cor veure com les flames posen fi a tanta i tanta història... #NotreDame
 
 
This is so hard to watch #notredame 😪🇫🇷
 
Böylesi bir şaheseri bu hale getirmeyi nasıl başardınız?!!
