Books of condolence opened by the local administration of the 11th arrondissement in Paris, the day after the terrorist attacks of 13 November 2015. The first register was a simple spiral-bound notebook, put in place urgently on the morning of 14 November. In three months, upwards of 1,300 messages were left in 4 different registers. More than 90% of these were written in the first fortnight. Historian Hélène Frouard carried out an enquiry concerning these registers based on interviews with the people involved (city hall staff, eye-witnesses etc.) and did a statistical analysis of their content. One of the aims was to study the impact of the attacks on the inhabitants of Paris.
