12:05 pm
commemorative ceremonies here throughout town starting off with the start of france the far side of the attacks two years ago where one hundred thirty people were killed in paris then things moved on to other sites here in the east of paris just a couple of hundred meters away from where i am standing to two small cafe's in the bar and then finally the french president of the former president also along as well as the interior minister arrived with a crowd of relatives and families to commemorate the victims of these terrible attacks here at the back to clone a music club the names were written out of the ninety people who were killed in this concert hall here behind me in a minute of silence was held in commemoration of those killed and here you were in paris to cover those deadly attacks for us two years ago what it what did give us a sense of what the feeling is in the french capital today.
12:06 pm
very mixed feelings here i have to say i talked to a lot of people this morning here and you have of course those who say let's move on let's let's not be taken back by by fear or hatred and that is very much reflected when you look at the particular music hall for instance which has been opened up since and since a year now well visited a number of concerts actually the first three months of two thousand and eighteen already booked out so very much back on track at the same time people have told me that every small scale attack that has happened in the past year has sort of served as a reminder of these terrible events and hardly a week goes by without a police operation there were further suspects are arrested were further people are placed under house arrest so overall france still a country very much marked by these events two years ago yes is a country still a bit on edge talking about safety go france has been under the state of emergency
12:07 pm
for around two years now is it a safer place what people that field. when an antiterrorism law only ten days ago replaced the state of emergency and it has given the police forces vast. vast opportunities to interfere to detain to search houses a true erect a security zones all without the order of a judge then also you have about ten thousand soldiers patrolling the bigger cities in france and you have an extra ten thousand police officers that the french president hopes to get into the police force to add to the police force so by and large all things that should provide more security while some criticize at the sign same time infringe on the civil rights in france and this new anti-terrorism law has in a sense. replaced a permanent state of security in the country also at the same time one has to bear
12:08 pm
in mind that police forces have warned that homegrown attacks could still be possible in the future there's still a high risk and that of course is a huge concern for french citizens and for people in paris in particular get much matters in paris thank you very much for that now those attacks of two years ago in the heart of the french capital send shock waves across the country but the impact was greatest for those directly affected didn't we spoke to one survivor off the buttock on massacre about that fateful night. whenever christopher modahl walks past this place the memories come flooding back what happened here on nov thirteenth two thousand and fifteen changed his life forever ever since that day the battle plan has taken on a new meaning for him. to get. i'm very strongly attached to this place
12:09 pm
because it's in a good way. it's as if the better class had a soul and protected me. i like coming here because it's reassuring. and makes me think and remember what happened this year with you on the scene there. christoph barricaded himself into a room behind the stage when the terrorists started shooting that decision saved his life he was at the concert with two friends one of them died during the attack he still finds it difficult talking about what happened and was haunted by what he had experienced for months after what's this question. dramatic stress disorder. but i was incredibly tense and every little sound made me jump. i was playing by flashbacks and kept seeing images from that night hearing the sounds and smelling those horrible smells so they get apologetic and. christoph went to therapy to help him come to terms with his experience instead of shutting himself away at home he
12:10 pm
went out more so than before he wanted to feel alive these tatoos mean that night and is forever a part of him they are complex. as a survivor you feel guilty that others had to die while you got away with your life now. these tattoos are like my own gunshop when. they show that i was there that night and who i am. and that's all. things are better now and still life for the forty one year old will never be the same again also in a good way. i'm much more willing to take a leap now that. i've only been with my girlfriend for seven months and we're already talking about moving in together and having a child. i would have been much more hesitant to do that two years ago.
12:11 pm
but now i'm thinking seize the day because. you need to go for things if there's a chance they will make you happy or. that. kristoff things france has stood its ground against the threat of terrorism people are sticking together not letting themselves be divided even after further attacks yet in one respect he says the terrorists have won but for photos the most france has restricted civil liberties. first by maintaining the state of emergency for so long. and then by enshrining many of those extra police powers and. in a way that's a victory for the terrorists or because they want to frighten us and make us give up some of our civil rights that there was. also thought that was offered. this office more frightened than he was before frightened that he could lose
