The President of the Republic alongside Mr. Isaac Herzog, President of the State of Israel, will travel to Toulouse on Sunday March 20, 2022 on the occasion of the commemoration ceremonies of the tenth anniversary of the attacks in Toulouse and Montauban organized by the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France (CRIF).
Their joint presence “intends to mark the friendship that binds France and Israel, as well as the desire of the two heads of state to continue their common fight against terrorism and against anti-Semitism”, specifies the Elysée, in a press release. .
The President of the Republic and the President of the State of Israel lay a wreath “in the courtyard of the Ohr Torah school” (formerly Otzar Hatorah school), at the foot of the Tree of Life, a monument in homage to the victims.
The two Heads of State will then go to the Halle aux Grains, where “a ceremony of homage to the victims of the March 2012 killings” will take place.
In memory of the victims, “several texts will be read” by their friends and members of their families, then the President of the State of Israel and the President of the Republic deliver speeches.
