Books Info:

Death be Proud free pdf All places in the world contain final resting places where the deceased can be regarded with veneration that the family can continue honoring them. It's a worldwide phenomenon! People have picnicked, climbed, and visited these places with great joy. Pire Lachaise in Paris is a sculptural festival with so many famous people there- It was a favorite place for Jim Morrison for strolling and his request to be buried there. The Pyramids in Egypt used to be climbed, a great adventure for the Victorians. The Taj Mahal is the most magnificent palace for a woman with thousands of visitors a day. This short volume shows how these important universal monuments will always be with us and how they represent the times they were built in. It includes too few important mass memorials for concentration camps and WW II sites. Although not focusing on the rich and famous, this book does include such unusual tombs like those of Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Edgar Degas, Vaslav Nijinski, Edith Piaf, Frederick Chopin, Jean Paul Sartre and Jim Morrison.
