Take a Break: Watch Notre Dame Light Show

Nov. 11 was the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. To honor this occasion, Notre Dame in Paris mounted the most incredible light show which is now available on YouTube. While it’s in French, it’s an amazing spectacle. 

The 25-minute display, "Dame de Coeur," tells the 800-year history of the cathedral through LEDs and 3D video mapping. On a battle field in 1917, the show opens with an injured American soldier who tells a young French nurse he regrets never visiting Notre-Dame. The event seeks to demonstrate the incredible history of the building, through the lens of the tragedy of WWI, and especially in homage to the American soldiers who fought in France during the country’s time of deep peril.
