Muslim Hero of Kosher Supermarket Attack Recalls How He Hid Six Customers in Freezer Room
Ynet – In a weekend of tragedy, the deeds of Lassana Bathily are a symbol of hope that the human spirit and compassion can unite people and overcome cultural and religious conflicts.
Bathily, 24, is a Mali-born French Muslim, who for the past four years has worked at the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in eastern Paris. He was there when terrorist Amdey Coulibaly stormed in on Friday. Without hesitation, knowing that if caught his own life would be in danger, Bathily led six customers down to the freezer rooms, out of the sight of the gunman.
