A work of Banksy that paid tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks that took place in 2015 in Paris was stolen Friday night to Saturday from the Bataclan room. The painting was in one of its doors. "We are dismayed today and we feel great indignation," the Bataclan room has communicated through Twitter. "The work of Banksy, a symbol of the memory that belonged to us all, to Parisians and to the citizens of the world, has been stolen," he added. "The very essence of urban art is to give life to a work of art in a particular environment and we are convinced that this work only made sense in that place, which is the reason why we wanted to set it free, on the street, accessible to all".
The work, which depicted a sad-headed woman with a sad face, was painted in one of the emergency rooms of the ward, where many people escaped the attack carried out by terrorists of the jihadist group Islamic State (IS), who stormed on the premises and indiscriminately shot at the public. The graffiti was removed by the thieves in a van.
The attacks that took place on November 13, 2015 by members of the Islamic State left 130 dead, mostly inside the concert hall. The rest died in several terraces in the east of the capital, as well as in the vicinity of the stadium of the State of France. Banksy posted a photo of the work on his Instagram account last June, confirming his authorship.
