Is this a real Paris Catacomb
Ghost Photo asks Harold Grant Ghost Picture
from his recent trip to Paris 2008.
Long ago, as the city of Paris grew, it
became necessary to provide more space
for the living. To do so, engineers and
planners decided to move the mass of humanity
least likely to protest: in this case,
the dead. Millions of Parisian dead were
quietly disinterred in one of the largest
engineering feats in history and their
remains were deposited along the walls
of the chilly, dank passageways lying
beneath the City of Light. They lie there
to this day, in the eternal darkness,
an Empire of the Dead.
The Paris Catacombs are infamous and much
has been written about their history and
purpose. A million visitors a year are
said to walk the dank corridors and to
stare at the bones and gaze fixedly into
the empty eye-sockets of the long dead.
Many of these same visitors, and some
of their guides, have encountered more
than just the silence in the catacombs:
they have had encounters with ghostly
inhabitants that roam the empty passageways
and mutely follow the tour groups around.
Ghost Photos and erie feelings or often
reported through out the internet from
the many visitors to the locations. Ghost
are often said to be felt more the witnessed
eye to eye. Many have reported to us that
they have been grabbed or have felt ghost
touching them even grabbing their hands
A Real Paris Catacomb
Ghost Photo sent to us by Brian Lundsguard
Several report seeing a group of shadows
in one area of the catacombs; as the living
walk along, the dead follow in complete
silence. To some the experience is completely
overwhelming and tours have been cut short
by the growing sense of unease. Photos
have revealed orbs and ghostly apparitions,
and EVP's have been recorded throughout
the vaults. And many, many ghost photos
happen all the time.
The catacombs were first cleared in Roman
times, with succeeding generations of
Gauls and Frenchmen perfecting the Roman
engineering. Now the catacombs are a veritable
rabbit’s warren, and though many
boldly enter without a guide, to do so
puts one at risk of being lost there forever.
There have been many reports of rash individuals
who wandered into the catacombs for a
laugh and who have never been seen again.

Aokigahara Forest, Japan
Aokigahara (青木ヶ原?), also known as the Sea of Trees (樹海, Jukai), is a forest that lies at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. The caverns found in this forest are rocky and ice-covered annually. It has been claimed by local residents and visitors that the woods are host to a great amount of paranormal phenomena. It is an old ancient forest reportedly haunted by many urban historical legends of strange beasts, monsters, ghosts, and goblins, which add to its serious and sinister reputation.
The forest floor consists primarily of volcanic rock and is difficult to penetrate with hand tools such as picks or shovels. There are also a variety of unofficial trails that are used semi-regularly for the annual "body hunt" done by local volunteers, who mark their search areas with plastic tape. The plastic tape is never removed, so a great deal of it litters the first kilometer of the forest, past the designated trails leading to and from known tourist attractions such as the Ice Cave and Wind Cave. After the first kilometer into Aokigahara towards Mount Fuji, the forest is in a much more pristine state, with little to no litter and few obvious signs of human contact. On some occasions human remains can be found in the distant reaches of the forest, but these are usually several years old and consist of scattered bones and incomplete skeletons, suggesting the presence of scavenging animals.
Ghost encouters of the wandering dead are said to be often encountered more then just frequently as well as many ghost photos and EVP's.
A very popular myth states that the magnetic iron deposits underground cause compasses to malfunction and travelers to get lost in the forest. However this myth is largely false. Japan's Self Defence Force and the US Military regularly run training practices through portions of the forest, during which military grade lensatic compasses have been verified to function properly. Vehicles, GPS equipment, and other electronic devices function properly.
It is also a popular place for suicides, reportedly the world’s third most popular suicide location after San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge , and (before the installation of the Luminous Veil) Toronto's Bloor Street Viaduct, due in some part to the novel Kuroi Jukai (黒い樹海, lit. Black Sea of Trees?), which ends with the lovers of the novel committing suicide in the forest. Since the 1950s, more than 500 people have lost their lives in the forest, mostly suicides, with approximately 30 suicides counted yearly. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within the forest, replacing the previous record of 73 in 1998. The high rate of suicide has led officials to place signs in the forest, urging those who have gone there to commit suicide to seek help and not kill themselves. The annual search, consisting of a small army of police, volunteers and attendant journalists, began in 1970.
Typically most suicides are men, with over 71% of suicides in 2007 being male. The rate among the over-60 population is also high, but people in their thirties are most likely to commit suicide. Suicide is the leading cause of death for people under 30.
The most frequent location for all in japan are often suicides is in Aokigahara, In the period leading up to 1988, about 30 suicides occurred there every year. In 1999, 74 occurred, the record until 2002 when 78 suicides were found. The area is patrolled by police looking for suicides, and that same year 83 people intending suicide were found and taken into protective custody.
Railroad tracks are also a common place for suicide, and the Chūō Rapid Line is particularly known for a high number.
Aside from those intending to die there, the dense forest and rugged inaccessibility has attracted thrill seekers. Many of these hikers mark their routes by leaving colored plastic tapes behind, causing concerns from prefectural officials for the ecosystem of the forest.
In 2004, a movie about the forest was released, called Jyukai — The Sea of Trees Behind Mt. Fuji (樹の海, lit. Sea of Trees?), by the director Takimoto Tomoyuki. It told the story of four people who decided to end their lives in the forest of Aokigahara. While scouting for shooting locations, Takimoto told reporters that he found a wallet containing 370,000 yen (roughly $3,760 USD), giving rise to the popular rumor that Aokigahara is a treasure trove for scavengers. Others have claimed to have found credit cards, rail passes, and driver's licenses.
Suicide in Japan is considered to be a major problem nationally.Causes of suicide include unemployment (due to the economic recession in the 1990s), depression, and social pressures. Japan has one of the world's highest suicide rates, especially amongst industrialized nations, and the Japanese government says the rate for 2006 is ninth highest in the world. In 2007, the number of suicides exceeded 30,000 for the tenth straight year. - Since 2008, the economic situation worsened in Japan due to the global financial crisis, and this has pushed the suicide rate in Japan even higher. The industries are becoming smaller which is causing higher unemployment. This in turn leads to the Japanese husbands being at home much more and this is causing domestic problems because it has been the traditional role of the Japanese women to be in the home. This situation has been the cause of some marriage breakdown, even divorce. Being unable to cope with these stresses, the Japanese men have turned to suicide.
The rapid increase in suicides since the 1990s has raised concerns, with 1998 having a 34.7% increase over the previous year.
Also, suicide of the youth in Japan is becoming more serious in recent years. The financial crisis has impacted also on the Japanese youth, and they see that there are few possibilities of work. A number of youth in Japan cannot see any improvement for themselves in the near future and because of this they are turning to suicide.
Common methods of suicide are jumping in front of trains, leaping off high places, hanging, or overdosing on medication. Rail companies will charge the families of those who commit suicide a fee depending on the severity of disrupted traffic.
A newer method, gaining in popularity partly to publicity from Internet suicide websites, is to use household products to make the poisonous gas hydrogen sulfide. In 2007, only 29 suicides used this gas, but in a span from January to September 2008, 867 suicides resulted from gas poisoning.
Far below the busy streets of modern Edinburgh
lies a dark, forgotten corner of history.
Discovered in the mid-1980’s, the
Edinburgh Vaults had been abandoned for
nearly two hundred years. Lying beneath
the South Bridge, a major Edinburgh passage,
the rooms were used as cellars, workshops
and even as residences by the businesses
that plied their trade on the busy bridge
above. Abandoned soon after they were
built due to excessive water and moisture,
the vaults remain, unaltered, never illuminated
by the light of day.
This location is said to be very haunted.
Many visitors have been attacked by the
unseen and left with bruises, cuts, and
scratches. Others have been knocked unconscious
and overcome by debilitating nausea and

The South Bridge has stood since 1785
and it was around this time that the huge
supporting arches were first divided for
use by nearby businesses. The vaults were
once bustling with life, the vast overflow
of an ever-growing city.
When the vaults became mostly abandoned
because of the unwholesome atmosphere
they were still used sporadically by the
poor and homeless of Edinburgh society.
As with any great concentration of unhealthy
people, there were outbreaks of plague
and other devastating illnesses; many
of the people who took refuge in the vaults
ultimately died there. There is evidence
that at least some of these people may
have met untimely ends because it was
here in the Edinburgh Vaults that the
nefarious pair, Burke and Hare, plied
their trade of providing cadavers to the
nearby teaching hospitals of Infirmary

Paranormal investigations have been conducted
in the vaults practically since their
discovery and to date the location has
not failed to provide a wealth of disturbing
and unexplainable activity. Recently visited
by the crew from England’s “Most
Haunted,” the vaults maintained
their reputation as the spookiest place
in Edinburgh – no member of the
team would voluntarily return there.
At the height of Rome’s power the
Coliseum represented everything that was
Imperial to the citizens of Rome. Gladiators
would fight to the death here for the
amusement of Caesar and the mobs; thousands
of prisoners of war and victims of religious
persecution met their end in the jaws
of lions and tigers in the sandy arena
of the Coliseum; and even those animals
were decimated, for in its time the Coliseum
consumed tens of thousands of animals,
some reportedly driven into extinction
by the Roman lust for blood and gore.
The workings of the Coliseum, the place
where the real grit of life took place,
were in the vaults beneath the sandy floor.
Now long ago exposed by the ravages of
time, there is still a pervasive feeling
of awe associated with the lingering presence
of a power so mighty it once encompassed
the entire known world.
In the pits beneath the Coliseum, gladiators
waited to fight, prisoners waited to die,
and average Romans placed bets on the
outcomes of myriad competitions. Such
a fabric of life can’t help but
wrap itself around the pillars and posts
that make up the foundation of this ancient
charnel house, and it is no surprise that
many reports of ghostly activity have
been associated with the Coliseum over
Tour guides and visitors alike have reported
cold spots, being touched or pushed, hearing
indiscernible words whispered into their
ears; security guards with the unenviable
task of securing the ancient edifice have
reported hearing the sounds of swords
clashing, of weeping in the more remote
areas, and, oddly enough most disconcerting,
the sound of ghostly animal noises such
as the roars of lions and elephants. Ghostly
citizens have been seen among the seats
of the Coliseum, and the sight of a Roman
soldier standing guard, silhouetted against
the night sky, is a common one.
With such ancient history and such a legacy
of death and bloodshed, there is little
wonder why the Roman Coliseum is one of
the most haunted places in the world.
No. 6: Walachia, Transylvania, Land of
“Beyond the green swelling hills
of the Mittel Land rose mighty slopes
of forest up to the lofty steeps of the
Carpathians themselves. Right and left
of us they towered, with the afternoon
sun falling full upon them and bringing
out all the glorious colours of this beautiful
range, deep blue and purple in the shadows
of the peaks, green and brown where grass
and rock mingled, and an endless perspective
of jagged rock and pointed crags, till
these were themselves lost in the distance,
where the snowy peaks rose grandly . .
“Just then a heavy cloud passed
across the face of the moon, so that we
were again in darkness . . . This was
all so strange and uncanny that a dreadful
fear came upon me, and I was afraid to
speak or move. The time seemed interminable,
as we swept on our way, now in almost
complete darkness, for the rolling clouds
obscured the moon.
“We kept on ascending, with occasional
periods of quick descent, but in the main
always ascending. Suddenly, I became conscious
of the fact that the driver was in the
act of pulling up the horses in the courtyard
of a vast ruined castle, from whose tall
black windows came no ray of light, and
whose broken battlements showed a jagged
line against the sky.”
-- “Dracula” by Bram Stoker.
“Perhaps the only place I felt Dracula’s
presence was on a long, curving road that
twists over the Transylvanian Alps. The
area is so remote and impenetrable that
no major road crossed this often stormy
mountain pass until 1974. As my car climbed
into the mist, traffic disappeared, and
the radio stopped working. The road passes
a dam and a hydroelectric plant guarded
by a handful of soldiers standing alone
in the gloom. And at the bottom of the
road are the ruins of a castle.
Dracula created this fortress as a refuge.
When the Turkish army surrounded him,
he is said to have escaped through a tunnel
and disappeared into the mountains.
His young son was strapped to the side
of his horse but slipped off and was left
for dead. His wife didn’t even try
to flee. She threw herself to death from
a tower window.
I stepped out of the car to take a look.
But it was night now, and the climb to
the castle would be difficult. I looked
up at the dark mountains and started to
shiver, glad to have a car to spirit me

Auschwitz death camp was in operation
from May 1940 until its liberation by
Soviet forces in January 1945. It is estimated
that 2.1 to 2.5 million people were killed
in the gas chambers during that time,
of whom 2 million were Jews and the remainder
were Poles, Gypsies and Soviet POWs. But
this estimate is considered by historians
to be strictly a minimum, because the
total number of deaths at Auschwitz and
its sister camp Birkenau can never really
It is clear that Auschwitz-Birkenau was
considered by the Germans to be one of
their most efficient extermination centers
as early as 1941 when the mortuary crematorium
at the Auschwitz main camp was adapted
as a gas chamber. Additional huts, called
“bunkers,” were added around
January 1942 and were especially active
in the autumn of 1944 when extra capacity
was needed for the systematic murder of
Hungarian Jews and the liquidation of
the ghettos. Between January 1942 and
March 1943 over 175,000 Jews were gassed
to death here, their bodies burned in
open pits nearby.
By early 1943 it was clear that Hitler’s
SS were using Auschwitz as a mass-murder
factory. Twin pairs of state of the art
gas chambers using Zyklon-B gas were opened
in March and April 1943. The capacity
of these crematoria was 4,420 persons.
Once inside the chambers it took about
20 minutes for the gas to kill this number
of people. The killings took place in
the underground chambers and the bodies
were carried to five crematoria ovens
on an electrically operated lift. Before
cremation, gold teeth, jewelry, and other
valuables were removed from the corpses.
Captured Jews, known as “sonderkommandos”
were forced to work the crematoria under
Anyone who has visited Auschwitz-Birkenau
is struck by the overwhelming sense of
melancholy and foreboding; visitors have
been known to break down in tears for
no apparent reason and many have to abandon
their tour groups without ever completing
the tour. Visitors are struck not only
by the horrific memory of the place, but
also by the effect it has on the present
day: birds still refuse to sing in the
trees surrounding the death camps and
there is little evidence of a thriving
natural environment anywhere nearby. The
silence, as they saw, is deafening, even
after all these years.
People have reported cold spots and areas
of intense emotional concentration. Recent
reports have come in that while touring
the camp some have been touched or even
grabbed by unseen hands. One visitor report
that someone or something tugged on her
clothes and she heard a voice whispering

Whitechapel/Spittalfields, London East
End, London, England.
The Whitechapel / Spittalfields area of
East London has been actively settled
since Roman times. Many of the historic
buildings are built on the remains of
old Roman settlements. Throughout the
Dark and Middle Ages, the East End was
a burgeoning commerce area, mostly inhabited
by Anglos and Jewish moneylenders. In
Elizabethan times the East End looked
and smelled like something right out of
one of Shakespeare’s history plays,
and, in fact, the character of Falstaff
(Henry V) is said to have been based on
an innkeeper from the notorious East End.
It was a place of soldiers and prostitutes,
brawls and bawdy houses.
The coming of high Victorian morals did
nothing to dull this seedy reputation
and the Whitechapel / Spittalfields area,
while known to humanitarians for its extreme
poverty, was also known to all as the
home of thieves, prostitutes, and the
most derelict of English society.
In 1888 the Whitechapel area of London
was the scene of some of the most brutal
murders ever recorded: the famous Jack
the Ripper crimes. Yet the murders –
and the identity of Jack – remain
unsolved, even today. Many assert that
the killer was a doctor or was somehow
connected to the medical profession; others
believe the killer to have been Queen
Victoria’s grandson, Prince Albert
Victor, though nothing substantial has
ever arisen to support the theory.
Five women, all of them poor prostitutes,
were slaughtered by the mysterious Jack
in the span of just four months, known
collectively as “The Autumn of Terror.”
Four of the women – Mary Nicholls,
Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine
Eddowes – were found in various
streets and alleys throughout Whitechapel
horribly disfigured and mutilated. The
fifth – Mary Kelly – was the
only victim murdered in an interior location;
as such she was the most horribly mutilated,
the death scene like something from a
Jack the Ripper enjoyed a brief career
as London’s most infamous serial
murder and the fact that he was never
caught still adds to the mystery surrounding
him. Nevertheless, it is thought that
his horrible mutilation of Mary Kelly
was his last act of violence and there
is no evidence that Jack, whoever he may
have been, killed again after November
Today visitors to London’s East
End can walk the streets that Jack prowled
and visit pubs and other locations he
may have haunted in life – and death.
Walking tours of the area are very popular
and although Jack’s legacy is certainly
the most enduring, other ghosts that haunt
the East End are those of Jack’s
victims, in various stages of mutilation;
a ghostly band of Roman soldiers; a murderous
sea captain’s ghost that haunts
a local pub; and a mysterious black carriage
drawn by ghastly white horses that approaches
without a sound and disappears right before
your eyes. These and other haunts, combined
with the long haunted history of the East
End make it one of the must visit ghostly
locations in the world.
Unit 731 Experimentation Camp, Harbin,
“It is called the Asian Auschwitz
and, in terms of inhumanity and horror,
it certainly warrants this description.
Yet there remains a fundamental difference
with the crimes perpetrated by the Nazis
against Jews: While Germany has shown
deep contrition and remorse, the leaders
the country that spawned the evil of Unit
731 still struggle to come to grips with
what occurred . . . In the end at least
3,000 prisoners, mainly Chinese, were
killed directly, with a further 250,000
Chinese left to die through the biological
In the gruesome world of Unit 731 the
unthinkable was done on a daily basis.
Prisoners, mostly taken in Japan’s
conquest of Manchuria at the beginning
of WWII, were subjected to unimaginable
horrors. They were infected with diseases
such as anthrax, cholera and even bubonic
plague. To gauge the effect of these diseases
on their subjects – whom they dehumanized
by calling them “logs” –
live, un-anesthetized vivisection was
performed. In many cases the subjects
would regain consciousness while the dissection
was taking place.
Whole towns and villages were decimated
by the ghoulish doctors and researchers
of Unit 731 and the effects of their horrible
crimes still resonate there to this day.
Parts of the Unit 731 complex still remain
– there are buildings where frostbite
experiments were performed, courtyards
and open areas where prisoners were subjected
to live bombs detonated at close range
to enable researchers to evaluate the
effect of explosives of the sort that
Japanese soldiers were encountering in
the fields. Other buildings where live
human vivisections took place overlook
the prisoner holding area and the long-unused
railway station where the “logs”
were offloaded for their horrible fate.
The Chinese government sanctioned the
Unit and the surrounding area as a learning
center for future generations of Chinese,
and just recently visitors from the West
have been allowed access to the killing
fields at Harbin. But for many years there
have been reports of paranormal activity
associated with the old charnel houses:
ghost lights and apparitions are frequently
seen, including a ghostly figure that
walks the empty precincts surrounding
the frostbite units. Ghostly voices have
been heard and anomalies frequently appear
in photographs taken in the area. Recently,
during the filming of a BBC television

10: Haunted Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
deadly battle of the Civil War took
place in 1863 in the tiny Pennsylvania
town of Gettysburg. Union soldiers
were low on ammunition and losing
the fight, nearly capitulating them
to the advancing Confederate army.
Then, as they used up the last of
their gunpowder, a ghostly George
Washington on a white stallion appeared
before them, urging them on to victory
— an event that ultimately
turned the tide of the war. That's
the way the legend tells it anyway,
and to this day, the people who
live in and around Gettysburg maintain
that George Washington's ghost rides
regally across that same battlefield
every summer. Of all the forlorn,
countless souls awash in time, none
reach out to us more than those
of the dead at Gettysburg . . .
Their presence on earth was silenced
forever by death. Or maybe not."
-- Mark Nesbitt.

more of the whole story
Victorian Rookwood necropolis in Sydney, but it is the grave of the notorious Davenport Brothers, famous spiritualists. Rookwood Cemetery (officially named The Necropolis and named when it opened as The Necropolis, Haslams Creek.) is the largest multicultural necropolis in the Southern Hemisphere, close to Lidcombe Station in Sydney, Australia.
The name Rookwood came some 20 years after the establishment of the necropolis, it was a means to differentiate the local village of Haslams Creek from the association of the burial ground, the village changed its name to Rookwood, and naturally the cemetery was soon known as Rookwood, the village changed its name again in the early 20th Century to "Lidcombe" (a combination of two Mayors names, Lidbury and Larcombe - Larcombe was also a Monumental Stone Mason). The cemetery retained the name Rookwood.
Approximately one million people have their final resting place within the boundaries of its almost 3 km². The "Friends of Rookwood Inc" raise public awareness of the cultural and historical value of the cemetery and also the need to ensure its preservation.
Some older sections of Rookwood are overgrown with a riot of plants, early horticultural plants, some now large trees or groves, as well as an interesting array of remnant indigenous flora. This results in quite an eclectic mix of flora to be found within the necropolis. Many say that since so many are interred here it can't just help being one of the most haunted places where the dead are buried.
Many ghost photos, EVP's and actual documenting of what many call the most real encounters of actual paranormal Activity in the world.
