Time passes and history withers. How long has it been since someone placed fresh flowers on this little memorial to a fallen fighter in the August 1944 liberation of Paris? It’s not hidden away.

"I wanted a bookstore because the book business is the business of life."

Whitman died Wednesday in his apartment above the store. He was 98.
