'Und natürlich war in Paris der Gestank am größten, denn Paris war die größte Stadt Frankreichs. Und innerhalb von Paris wiederum gab es einen Ort, an dem der Gestank ganz besonders infernalisch herrschte, zwischen der Rue aux Fers und der Rue de la Ferronnerie, nämlich den Cimetière des Innocents. Achthundert Jahre lang hatte man hierher die Toten des Krankenhauses Hôtel-Dieu und der umliegenden Pfarrgemeinden verbracht, achthundert Jahre lang Tag für Tag die Kadaver zu Dutzenden herbeigekarrt und in lange Gräben geschüttet, achthundert Jahre lang in den Grüften und Beinhäusern Knöchelchen auf Knöchelchen geschichtet. Und erst später, am Vorabend der Französischen Revolution, nachdem einige der Leichengräben gefährlich eingestürzt waren und der Gestank des überquellenden Friedhofs die Anwohner nicht mehr zu bloßen Protesten, sondern zu wahren Aufständen trieb, wurde er endlich geschlossen und aufgelassen, wurden die Millionen Knochen und Schädel in die Katakomben von Montmartre geschaufelt, und man errichtete an seiner Stelle einen Marktplatz für Viktualien.

Hier nun, am allerstinkendsten Ort des gesamten Königreichs, wurde am 17. Juli 1738 Jean-Baptiste Grenouille geboren.'
