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.

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.”
