The Union of French Mosques (UMF) released an official statement following the murder of Mireille Knoll.
“The Union of French Mosques (UMF) strongly denounces and condemns the cowardly and heinous assassination in Paris last Friday of an 85-year old Jewish woman who survived the Vel d’Hiv roundup. Two suspects have been arrested and prosecuted for intentional homicide, and the antisemitic nature of this abject murder has been noted by the Paris prosecutor in charge of the investigation.
The Union of French Mosques offers its sincere condolences to the victim’s children and her relatives, and extends its complete support and its full solidarity with the Jewish community of France, badly affected by this terrible and deadly tragedy.”
Mohammed MOUSSAOUI, President of the Union of French Mosques
