    In March, 85-year-old holocaust survivor Mireille Knoll was stabbed 11 times before being set on fire in her flat in the French capital. The tragedy is being treated as an anti-Semitic attack.

    People have taken to the streets of Paris to pay their respects to Mireille Knoll — a woman who had survived Nazi crimes, but was violently murdered being 85 years old in what is believed to be an anti-Semitic crime. Two suspects have been detained: her neighbor and another individual, both having criminal records.
