Emmanuel Domenach survived the bloodshed in the Bataclan music venue he recalls that bloody November night:” I saw blood, dead people around me, I’m next. That was my reaction, I don’t understand it, I can’t explain, it wasn’t me who took control, it wasn’t my emotions, it was my brain that said get up and run, run to the open door it isn’t far, do what you can.

Point of view

I saw blood, dead people around me, I'm next

Emmanuel Domenach Bataclan survivor

I don’t know whether I will be able to leave it all behind one day, because it changed me forever. I hope I won’t be a victim forever, but at the same time it is difficult to say I’ve left it behind me, you cannot ignore it, you can’t ignore it. I discovered what it’s like to feel anxious, I discovered what it’s like to be depressed and many other things. I can’t ignore that. I can’t pretend that I haven’t changed, I can’t say that I am the same person as was before the 13th of November. So I don’t know if it will ever end.”
