Infanticide … in France … pandemic proportions …

    For a few years now I’ve been amazed at how French women kill their newborns. It has become a real infanticide pandemic. I may be wrong but I don’t think that the women of any other country are so into infanticide as are the women of France. French Ministry of Justice archives show […]

JACK THE RIPPER DIED TODAY … 96 YEARS AGO …

  Today – March 24 – 96 years ago Jack the Ripper died. Or rather a Polish-born Jew named Aaron Kosminski died.   He died in the Leavesden Asylum for Adult Imbeciles which was established in 1870.  Today, with our political correctness, no one would dare identify any place as ‘an asylum for adult imbeciles’, […]

Stealing Picassos … weird case of art theft …

  Thursday, September 9, 2010, Claude Ruiz-Picasso, son of the late Spanish-born artist and sculptor Pablo Picasso, was waiting for a couple named Le Guennec to ring the door bell. Claude Ruiz-Picasso (68), or Claude Picasso as he is generally known, was in the office of the Paris-based Picasso Administration. The Picasso Administration was founded […]

Serial killers … Profiling … Just ordinary guys … ?

FBI agent Robert K. Ressler (1937-2013) coined the term ‘serial killer’. The FBI’s top criminologist,he studied the psychology of dozens of killers, the knowledge he thus obtained having allowed him to profile someone who had not killed just once but repeatedly. And such a killer he then called a serial killer. I became interested in Dr […]

Paris Islamist Terrorist Threat Remains …

On Sunday, March 15, 2015, at 9, the Hyper Cacher supermarket at Paris’s Porte de Vincennes reopened. (As you will recall the shop was closed unexpectedly on the afternoon of Friday, January 9, customers still doing last-minute purchases before the start of the Shabbat when jihadist Amedy Coulibaly walked in and opened fire killing four […]

An interview with me … all about me and my writing …

    You can read an interview with me here. The interview begins: Today we are interviewing Marilyn Z. Tomlins, author of the true crime book Die in Paris. Tell us a bit about yourself? I am English and I live in Paris. When I am not writing, I am reading what others have written. Indeed, […]

Chevaline Murder Case … Still unsolved …

Two years and six months after the fatal shooting of an Iraqi-born British family and a Frenchman in France’s Haute-Savoie (Upper Savoy) region, the police still have no clue as to who the killer was or the killers were. I say ‘police’ and not ‘French police’ as the British police are as much in the […]

PARIS HOTEL ACCOMMODATION NOW MOST EXPENSIVE IN EUROPE …

One night in a Paris hotel will now cost you on average €206. This means if you are American it will be $228 ; British £149 ; South African R2681 ; Japanese Y27418 ; Russian R13927 ; Chinese Y1429 Expensive? I agree. According to a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers, a night in a Paris hotel at €206 […]

NUNGESSER AND COLI … AVIATION HEROES … BUT LINDBERGH GOT THE HONOURS …

  These days heroes are few and far between. I have since 2011 been writing about the two French aviators, Nungesser and Coli, who should be in the history books as heroes, but are practically unknown outside of aviation circles. Charles Eugène Jules Marie Nungesser (35) and François Coli (46) left Paris’s Le Bourget Airport […]

PARIS TO BE MORE WELCOMING TO TOURISTS …

  How many times have I not heard complaints about how rude the French are? I have stopped counting, but just this past Christmas it was said to me: “I don’t think that the French like tourists.” This was said, by the way, by someone who visits Paris once each year, so my question is, […]

Prostitution … in France … and the Lille Prostitute and Pimping Case …

Prostitutes: one sees them in certain areas of Paris be it broad daylight or in the dark of night. Ask any Parisian (male or female from the age of 14 or 15) which areas these are and you will be told. I am therefore not going to name them. There are 20,000 prostitutes in France. […]

GREAT WAR MUSEUM … AND A TOWN NAMED MEAUX …

  You may think that the First World War (Great War) is too far into the past to interest you: that it is for veterans of wars, for historians, for lecturers and teachers, for researchers, for biographers, for the old and the aging. No! Believe me, visiting the Great War Museum – Le Musée de […]

Dying in Paris … because they were Jews …

    In 1942 France having capitulated to Nazi Germany and the Germans occupying the country a vicious Frenchman began killing Jews. This Frenchman was a medical doctor – Dr Marcel Petiot. He sold an escape route to Jews who wished to escape the Nazis – being arrested and then deported to concentration and death […]

NISSIM DE CAMONDO MUSEUM …WEALTH IN PARIS & DEATH IN AUSCHWITZ …

    Wandering through the rooms of the Nissim de Camonda Museum – Musée Nissim de Camondo – I was thinking if there is such a thing as a haunted house, then this house should be haunted. I did not however see any ghosts in this house, but its history did hang over its rooms […]

SAINT DENIS NORTH OF PARIS … BASILICA … NECROPOLIS OF MONARCHS OF FRANCE … A TOWN …

Just 9.4 km (5.8 miles) north of Paris is the town of Saint Denis or as we here in France say the ‘commune’ of Saint Denis. What we mean is that it is independent of other towns in France as it has its own municipality. You can read further about our communes. I will quickly […]
