Père Lachaise in the news

Georges Méliès’s great-great-granddaughter, Pauline Duclaud-Lacoste, has announced a crowdfunding campaign in hopes of raising enough money to see Méliès‘s grave fully renovated.

The Dardard association is beekeeping in Père Lachaise.

Stiv”, a new documentary about punk rocker Stiv Bators, apparently answers the question if indeed his ashes—given to Bebe Buell—were spread on Jim Morrison’s grave.

Astronomers recently captured the first image of a black hole at the heart of the galaxy Messier 87. This galaxy is named after Charles Messier who discovered it in 1798. Messier is buried in Division 11.
