The Atlanta American Jewish Committee is holding a memorial service for Mireille Knoll on Thursday, March 29, at 1 p.m. at the Besser Holocaust Memorial at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta.

The Besser Holocaust Memorial is located at the MJCCA’s Zaban Park, 5342 Tilly Mill Road in Dunwoody. The service is open to the public.

Knoll, 85, was found dead in her apartment in Paris on March 23. She had been stabbed to death and partially burned. French prosecutors said she was killed because she was Jewish. Knoll, as a girl, barely escaped France’s wartime roundup of Jews and who most were eventually killed at Auschwitz.

Two men have been charged in the killing.

Speakers at the memorial service include Consuls General of France and Israel.

  1. “Two men have been charged in the killing”. Men? A half-truth is a whole lie.

    “…of all the victims of the insane decision to keep importing Islam into the heart of the west. But there are so many of them, and arithmetic ultimately overwhelms humanity. There will be more Arnaud Beltrames and “Mireille K”s, because there will be more Redouane Lakdims, because more and more arrive each day, because President Macron and M Collomb and their counterparts throughout Europe have decreed it must be so and can never change”.

  2. And in the USA we have neo-Nazi white supremacist groups murdering Jewish students, but the Trump administration refuses to address the problem of domestic terrorism by these hate groups, let alone even acknowledge that these incidents are occurring.

    Samuel Woodward, charged with murder of Blaze Bernstein, took part in Atomwaffen’s ‘hate camp’ training. Chats and messages published over the weekend from violent American neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen show members cheering the alleged murder last month of a gay Jewish teenager.
