At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

An iconic escape.

Alcatraz is not only the most famous prison in the United States. On an island in the Bay of San Francisco, no prisoner had ever managed to escape, until the night of 11 June 1962. Three prisoners achieved the impossible on a makeshift raft. Frank Morris, and the brothers Clarence and John Anglin escaped after digging through the wall of their cell.

There was a major operation to find them. But it was to no avail. While investigators think they drowned in the Bay, they are still on the police's wanted list. And some people argue that they might still be alive.
