A website that delivers French news in English has a feature about the Champs-Elysees, a two kilometer street in Paris, ending in the Arc de Triomphe. The feature was inspired by the latest act of terrorism, which happened on this street. The piece has a brief history of the street, from its beginning in 1670 to the present. It mentions several events that happened on the street, such as the French Revolution, Hitler’s walk in 1940 and de Gaulle’s emancipation in 1944. Several photos are included.
