Dr. Sarah Halimi (née Lucie Attal) was born in Nogent-sur-Marne, France on November 30, 1952. She was a beloved Orthodox Jewish woman who dedicated her life to caring for others, first as a family physician, and later as the director of a nursery school. On April 4, 2017, Sarah was attacked and killed in her apartment in the Belleville district of Paris. At 64 years old, she was a devoted mother of three, a grandmother, a sister, and an aunt. May her memory forever be a blessing and may justice be served.
