After the Bataclan… There is Still Life

,

Release date : 09/01/2020
For the first time after the attack on the Bataclan theater in Paris, a book of conversations between the father of one of the victims and the father of one of the jihadist attackers.
The night of November 13, 2015 was a dark one for France and the Bataclan attack will forever remain graven in its memory. Much has already been written about that night of terror, but never before has a book brought together the family members of both one of the attack’s victims... The night of November 13, 2015 was a dark one for France and the Bataclan attack will forever remain graven in its memory. Much has already been written about that night of terror, but never before has a book brought together the family members of both one of the attack’s victims and one of the terrorists. Until now, few fathers have spoken on the subject, and even fewer who completely oppose each other: such is the case of Georges Salines, father of Lola, who was killed at the Bataclan that night, and Azdyne Amimour, father of Samy, one of the theater’s three attackers.
From this meeting, an unprecedented, uncompromising dialogue has emerged between the two men. With mutual curiosity, they retrace their individual journeys and those of their children who both died at the age of 28, offering an account of that tragic night and the days that followed. Georges Salines carries the memory of his daughter, Lola, a passionate editor, as well as those of several other victims. Azdyne Amimour seeks to understand how his son came to commit such an unthinkable crime. He recalls his son’s radicalization, his departure for Syria and speculates on what could have led him to terrorism.
In this moving conversation, a deep respect and friendship is born between two families who still don’t understand what happened. Beyond the suffering and the unspeakable, this historic testimony offers a dialogue of peace, nourished by reflection and hope.
