The granddaughter of Mireille Knoll, a Holocaust survivor who was murdered by a Muslim in Paris last month, marched on Thursday in annual March of the Living in Poland Thursday after being invited to the parade by Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

The granddaughter, Captain Keren Brosh, serves as an IDF officer. "I'm sure your grandmother was so proud of you," the President told her. "I was so horrified and offended to hear the news. I want to give your family all our support."

Last week, the president sent a condolence message to Knoll's family: “On behalf of the State of Israel, I send you our sincere condolences on the tragic passing of Mrs. Mireille Knoll in Paris this week."

“That this terrible event should happen now just two weeks before the day we commemorate the Holocaust and mourn the victims is especially poignant.”

“The increasing anti-Semitic attacks throughout Europe, together with the rising support for political parties that promote racism, is particularly worrying and we continue to call on the leaders of Europe to increase their efforts to eliminate this,” Rivlin continued.

“It is difficult to realize that the life of someone who escaped the horrors of the Holocaust and whose home was open to all those in need should end in so cruel a way. The people of Israel open their hearts to you all at this difficult time. May you know no further sorrow,” he concluded.
