Miscellaneous facts. Intellectual Marek Halter assaulted at his home


84-year-old Jewish writer Marek Halter was assaulted at his Paris home on the night of Friday February 12 to Saturday February 13, according to Le Figaro.

“I dozed off in my chair, correcting my manuscript [“Un Monde sans prophète, à paraître en mars, ndlr], when I felt a presence and saw a hooded man above me, and another in the embrasure of my door, “he told our colleagues.

He added: “I grabbed the one who was near me, to ask him what he was doing at my house. He then gave me a few hits, leaving me with bruises and a few wounds. ‘If you scream, t ‘are dead,’ he told me. “

They didn’t steal anything from him and took his keys. Figure in the fight against anti-Semitism and racism, Marek Halter ignores the motivations of his attackers: “Usually, a few anti-Semitic or racist words are launched but there, nothing, as if they just wanted to warn me.”

A complaint was filed this Saturday.
