Jewish Holocaust survivor (85) found stabbed to death in Paris flat

France's Jewish population - the largest in Western Europe - has warned of increasing anti-Semitism in the country and criticized authorities for not taking the threat seriously.

Authorities said Mireille Knoll, who died after being stabbed multiple times in her apartment, had her apartment set on fire after the attack. The flat was then set ablaze in an apparent attempt to cover up the murder.

According to the judicial source, the arrested men were notified by a judge that they are suspected of murder motivated by the victim's "real or supposed adherence to a religion", as well as aggravated theft and damage to property.

An elderly holocaust survivor was brutally murdered by a Muslim neighbor she had known since he was seven years old, her family members told Israeli media.

Responding to the prosecutor's recognition of the anti-Semitic nature of the attack, Knoll told i24NEWS that "it was what we lacked in this very hard, complicated puzzle".

Knoll's killing took place a year to the day after the murder of Sarah Halimi-Attal, a 65-year-old whose death prosecutors believe was anti-Semitic.

Mireille Knoll, one of the last remaining survivors of the Holocaust, was the victim of an anti-Semitic hate crime this week. "Of course there were risky Muslim extremists, but until today I didn't feel in danger", her son said.

In addition, Kanol's son told the French news agency AFP that one of the suspects was a regular visitor of his mother whom she treated "like a son".

Knoll reportedly escaped a notorious Second World War roundup of Paris Jews, in which police herded some 13,000 people - including more than 4,000 children - into a stadium and shipped them to the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi Germany-occupied Poland.

Reacting on Twitter, President Emmanuel Macron condemned the "dreadful" killing and reiterated his determination to fight anti-Semitism.

While she had lived alone for several years, Mrs. Knoll has several children and grandchildren living in Paris as well as at least one granddaughter in Israel.

The suspect "said that Jews have money, and that was the reason he attacked her", he added.

The CRIF umbrella grouping of French Jewish organisations called for "the fullest transparency" by the authorities investigating the killing.

The Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France called for a "white march" in Knoll's memory on Wednesday as an expression of compassion not just from the Jewish community, but from all of France.

Other high-profile attacks on Jewish communities include the 2012 shooting at a Jewish school in Toulouse, which left four people dead, and the 2015 jihadist attack on a kosher supermarket in Paris.
