  • Description

    French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing led a small pilgrimage to the grave of Georges Pompidou at the little village of Orvilliers, south of Paris, today - the first anniversary of the former President's death.

    While a service of commemoration was taking place at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the Pompidou family and some of M. Pompidou's closest political friends gathered at Orvilliers for a brief and simple ceremony.

    The relatively modest scope of the anniversary reflects the speed with which M. Pompidou's memory had faded from the French scene he so largely dominated for nearly a decade.
