Save the Anglo Cemetery in Nice

The Victorian cemetery built by the Anglican commuity in NICE FRANCE is now in peril! The graves are about to be dug up and replaced. Several beautiful examples of Victorian monuments- ostentatious vaults and plinths, massive anchors, urns, avenging angels and distraught weeping women will soon disappear unless we the international community declare this cemetery to be of heritage value. Please sign this petition !
