The Jewish owner of a cafe hit during the Paris attacks held his wife as she died in his arms.
Gregory Reibenberg’s La Belle Equipe cafe was targeted by two Daesh terrorists who murdered 19 victims, including his wife Djamila Houd.
Mr Reibenberg told television channel France-2: “I was holding her hand. We couldn’t revive her. We couldn’t do anything more.
“She asked me to take care of our daughter, and I promised I would.”
A picture of his wife is displayed on the outside of the cafe alongside photos of other victims, with piles of flowers, candles and notes left on the pavement by well-wishers.
Adath Shalom Masorti synagogue member Professor David Ruzie also lost his granddaughter Justine Moulin in the terror attacks on Friday night.
The 23-year-old university student, who was not Jewish, died at Le Petit Cambodge, the Cambodian restaurant where 15 died in an attack which also hit Le Carillon, a bar on the other side of a short zebra crossing.
SKEMA Business School in Paris, where Ms Moulin had been studying, held a minute’s silence on Monday “in her memory and that of all the victims.”
Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg, the senior rabbi for Masorti Judaism, said: “We respond to the appalling terror attacks in Paris with deep sorrow for the families of all those murdered, and with prayers for the wounded and traumatised.
“Our thoughts are especially with Professor David Ruzie, a member of one of the Masorti communities in Paris who lost his granddaughter Justine, and with all his family.”
He added: “Our spiritual response to terror is a profound affirmation of the value and sanctity of life as affirmed throughout Judaism, in every true expression of faith, and in the hearts of all who genuinely trust in God.”
