Latifa, a life standing

by Jarmila Buzkova


Latifa Ibn Ziaten is the mother of Imad, the French paratrooper killed by Mohammed Merah in Toulouse. Since the shooting, she has toured schools in France, channelling her grief into a force for good as she spreads a message of tolerance and anti-fanaticism. Teachers soon asked her to help them address questions from their disillusioned students. In the course of their discussions, she provides answers with conviction to youth, their parents, and all those who feel lost.
