Strasbourg. victims and elected officials commemorate the attack of December 11, 2018;

Victims, families and elected officials commemorated the attack on the Strasbourg Christmas market that left five people dead and many injured on December 11, 2018 in the presence of Justice Minister Eric Dupont-Moretti on Sunday, December 11.

Four years after tonight, when the unthinkable happened, here we are again gathered to testify to our desire to stand and stand united against barbarism.“said Marzuk Ichrak, who appeared at the scene of the attack and provided first aid to one of the persons targeted by the attacker.

Some victims begin the road to rebuilding, for others it’s a near-impossible exercise. Every victim is different, every victim progresses at their own pace“, he added.

“Urgent” ceremony.

Following him, former Christmas market security guard Guey Elcheik announced the names of the five people killed that evening. Eric Dupont-Moretti, as well as Bas-Rhin prefect Josian Chevalier and Strasbourg mayor Jeanne Barseghian laid a white rose at the foot of the memorial stone, while families and unions imitated him.

Attended by MPs, city councilors and religious representatives, this short ceremony ended with a minute’s silence without a speech from the minister or elected officials. “The ceremony is even denser than in previous years. Apart from families, there are no people, no citizens of Strasbourg… I have the impression that this is being done hastily.“After the ceremony, AFP Marzuk Ichrak addressed a lament. “Done doesn’t hang“, commented Mostafa Sahlen, president of the Association Victims Attentats (AVA). “Fortunately, the minister came, otherwise there would have been nothing at all“.

On December 11, 2018, 29-year-old recidivist Sheriff Chekat, with an “S” for Islamist radicalization, entered the historic center of Strasbourg, where the Christmas market was being held, armed with an old gun and a knife. He had randomly killed five men and injured 11 people. Having managed to escape, he was killed 48 hours later by the police in the southern district of Strasbourg. The “Islamic State” group claimed responsibility for his attack.
