[The Montmartre Cemetery]

— Histoire de Paris —

Au dix huiti?me si?cle, ce terrain sert d'acc aux nombreuses carri?res de pl?tre de la colline. Transform? en fosse commune pour les victimes des ?meutes sous la R?volution, il garde cette vocation de n?cropole, d'assez sinistre m?moire, sous le nom de "Cimeti?re de la Barri?re blanche", les parisiens exil de la capitale apr la fermeture de tous les cimeti?res intra-muros pour raison d'hygiene, y sont inhum dans les conditions d?plorables. Officiellement ouvert la 1er janvier 1825, le Cimeti?re de Nord est dormais prot?g? contre les pilleurs de s?pultures; il perd ainsi en 1856 l'un de ses conservateurs, M. de Vaulabelle, inventeur d'un syst?me de pi?ges avec mise ? feu, victime de son devoir pour s'?tre envoy? une d?charge mortelle en pleine poitrine!

Turned into a common grave for victims of the riots in the French Revolution, it retained this vocation necropolis, of rather infamous reputation , as the "Graveyard of the white barrier,": Parisian banished from the capital after the closure of all intramural [?] burial grounds for reason of hygiene, who were buried in deplorable conditions. Officially opened the 1st January 1825, the North Cemetery is now protected against grave robbers. In 1856 it lost one of its curators, M. Vaulabelle, inventor of a system of traps firing, killed on duty by a lethal shock to the chest!]
