PARIS, FRANCE - MAY 12: A visitor looks at a grid with love padlocks from the "Pont des Arts" displayed during an exhibition at the "Credit Municipal" on 12 May 2017 in Paris, France. Every year couples from around the world attached love padlocks to the sides of the "Bridge of the Arts". These gestures of love compromised the safety of walkers because the weight of the many locks damaged the structure of the bridge. This is why the City of Paris has removed these padlocks of love.
The City of Paris is organizing an auction of these love locks of the "Pont des Arts" with profits helping the refugees on May 13, 2017. (Photo by Chesnot/Getty Images)
